Recognized by sight: If this were found in Oregon, I’d have no problem with a Scleroderma identification. But I haven’t done any searching in Australia. Scleroderma are also known as “Pigskin Poison Puffballs”, have sterile bases, thick peridium (outer skin) that often bruise or stain colors when sliced; and marbled purple with white or yellow veins when immature. Mature specimens will have a powdery interior. Sclerodermas are typically erumpent (above ground) and found with many tree and plant species. This collection does not resemble any Scleroderma species I currently know.
