Damon, I was going to do the same thing last night… But…

I don’t think this is L. marginatum; that has a thick skin that flakes off as it matures and thick spines. Like this one… http://mushroomobserver.org/image/show_image/35881?q=6r2a&size=large

I don’t know Lycoperdon well enough to tell you which one this is. See what you can find on Lycoperdon mauryanum.

sigh Here we go again …

Why don’t you think it’s L. marginatum? It looks like a lot of other specimens I’ve found in the area over the years that have been identified as L. marginatum.
