Sorry for the bad macro picture, i only ad my phone today

small puffball (1 inch max) growing under ornamental conifers.Peridium white smooth, seem to be brown when immature and alway covered of dirt, the inside is grainy “sick” green colored.

The capillitium is large with thick walls ramificating in smaller parts, spores are brown with a single guttula measuring about 4-6u long with a very long pedicella approaching 10-12u.

microscopically similar to B plumbea, but it look strange for some reason.
