Sandy soil area of a restored tall grass prairie (private), near oaks
sequencing is in the works, will update observation later

Vascellum, Bovista, Lycoperdon, or Bovistella (pg 332 Nordic Macromycetes Vol 3) (brown book)

Kind of like a large Bovista pusilla (maybe this is even it)

I need to look at this one more…
