Not old yet, but on its way. Probably dug up or partially exposed, then dug up by an animal. In younger specimens, the gleba radiates outward from the columella (that central stipe-like thingy). Usually white when young, so older specimen. Might be able to tell more if spores are available. Douglas-fir is a common host in my experience. Not frequently collected: nice one! If you have dried material, you might consider mailing it to Dr. Matt Trappe, c/o Forestry Sciences Lab, 3200 Jefferson Way, Corvallis, OR. I think his entire address may be on the NATS website.
capillitium (the orientated spore mass)
laying on the ground under Douglas Fir,
it has longitudinal oriented (i.e. strange) spore mass
I am having a hard time looking at the photos telling if this has pores or is a hypogeous thing sliced open.
let me know if you need pictures of the spores or some thing
