This pair of large puffballs was in D9C (mixed woods, aspen prevalent). The one I pulled up had quite a mess of rhizines or something underneath, which came up with a fair amount of soil (left puffball in photo, turned on its side). Hide is brown and scaly. I don’t recognize these.

I went back there today and it was still there, so I cut the sucker in half. Purple-black inside, thick peridium, the works. The inside is not entirely homogeneous: a central region shows lighter-and-darker mottling and there’s filaments or something maybe woven in near the base.
