Found under blue spruce.

Ok, need help on this one, don’t know eastern US Scleroderma well enough. This one is mostly smooth grey-brown at first, with a short rooting pseudo-stipe. But when the spore mature the skin breaks up into loose patches, with bright yellow peridium showing through. Seems like it must be a commonly know species?
