Did anyone check the color of the spore mass?

or the habitat?

Looks like Calvatia cyathiformis, but that species is not spiny and grows in grass.

I guess I would guess more L. pyriforme for these, with fuzzy surface and light brown colors. I think L. marginatum is more warted. But the hex pattern looks a little funny.
