Some Sclerodermas start underground, eventually pushing or eroding or eventually extending to barely epigeous to nearly completely epigeous, usually with a strong cluster of rhizomorphic threads at the base.

The top of the sporocarp was easily 1/2 inch deep under ornamental bark dust. Also as indicated by the photos, it if quite young and still immature.
