I’d suggest S. albidum.

Unless the locules make it something else.

This was found in a stand of Pines next to a large pasture with grazing animals, it was about the size of a lemon and the smell was pleasant

your photos narrow the possibilities down to 3: S. michiganense, S. cepa S. albidum.

OR … since your obs. is loculate (has visible chambers in gleba) it is something else entirely, not Scleroderma.

Where did you happen to find this beauty, doctorghostly?
