Cross-section would help

Including peridium, gleba and base, including any rhizomorphic attachment to base. I suspect this is S. areolatum. But S. areolatum has a relatively thin peridium for a Scleroderma. Thicker peridium would indicate S. laeve, S. cepa or other. S. areolatum typically has a few mm thick peridium, often paper thin.
