Seems difficult to say…

whether or not the one specimen (photos labeled B) exhibits an apical pore. The hole appears to go through the spiny outer skin directly into the spore case. Maybe it’s just an abnormality.

On the other hand, post mature specimen seen in photos C shows no pore.

I think these all represent the same species. They were all found within a 9 square yard area of my lawn. But it’s possible that there’s two species here.
