this obs, really looks more ike a Gautieria than a Hymenogaster. The interior globe has a more pronounced columella, which matches Gautieria, It does not appear to have a bruising peridium, which also does not match Hynenogaster. Finally, the cut globes is reddish. No Hymenogasters have reddish glebas that I know of.

Thanks Daniel

Some notes

on where it was found would be helpful. Such as color of untouched peridium; peridium color as bruised (if different); nearby trees and shrubs; any odor; gleba texture. Soft like marshmallow? Rather hard (like softened butter)? Tough (like superball)?

The ID could change by looking at the spores. Hypogeous material ALWAYS needs photos of the spores.

Thanks for the ID
