looks like there’s a subgleba, and it also looks big for a “pusilla” (it means “very small”), but Bovista pusilla has been interpreted in many different ways (no type collection, and a vague original description).

The rhizomorph looks very thick, could it still be Lycoperdon pyriforme?

This looks like a Lycoperdon

From the subglebal portions visible in this photo, it certainly does not look like a Bovista.
