without knowing if there were mycorrhizal hosts nearby. Could also be a puffball. Need to have photo of sliced specimen. In all liklihood it is Scleroderma, which are known to be mycorrhizal with a wide assortment of host plants including: walnut, chestnut, alder, Douglas fir, oak, rhododendron, birch, cottonwood, willow, dogwood, Andromeda and possibly azalea.
