prefers acidic soil and E.muricatus lime soil as far as I know…

I have Elaphomyces granulatus up to 12 inches deep on my own property. While I would expect E. muricatus to be 2-4 inches deep, it could be deeper, especially in clay or sandy soils.

I dug around the area thoroughly, but never found the host.

Elaphomyces muricatus, I believe. Try using a hand-held 4-pronged rake near where these were found. Both E. muricatus and E. granulatus groups probably fruit year-round. Important to note whether spores visible in peridium or not.

a mycoparasite, you didn’t find any truffles below(Elaphomyces)?
