it’s Pisolithus, Jacob. Not many puffball-like fungi with peridioles that are epigeous. ); Even fewer that are hypogeous.

Someone with an “I’d Call It That” species can vote “Could Be” on the “Pisolithus” suggestion, letting the species override it.

For now, I feel like it’s better to communicate it’s certainly Pisolithus.

I voted promising for Pisolithus, only because I’m hopeful we will eventually have a species for this. The genus is Pisolithus.
