Should you happen across similar fungi in the future, there are some things that will help in identification.

1) Slice the fungus in half from the top to the bottom (apical pore to base).
2) Show a close-up of the results.
3) Include more information, such as: growing on wood, growing on soil, puffball-like, etc. Also helpful to some of us attempting identification of fungi are nearby tree types.
