The first photo is a nice representative of Scleroderma, do you mind if I use it for a publication? I’ll add it to a figure and send it to you so you know how it’s being used. And give you appropriate credit for the photo of course!

I am reasonably sure they are the same species. Growing inches from the top specimen.

S. areolatum for 2 upper photos.

But I think the bottom is more like S. cepa. The peridium (the outer shell) looks more yellow in this specimen, and I suspect the gleba (interior) will be quite hard. S. areolatum should be somewhat soft and spongy on the inside, while S. cepa has a gleba similar to a superball.
