shows internal veins when the photo is blown up. Obs. 98757 shows no internal veination. It is either too young or not Scleroderma.

How are these any different from 98757?

Daniel Wheeler?

Skin looks pretty thin to me, and the fruiting body is similar in shape and appearance (not to mention the same habitat. This one is “Definitely” and the other is “as if”?

Definately. The deep cracking at such an early, immature age, suggests one of the least common Sclerodermas. May be important to check back on this in 2-3 weeks for more mature material. Mature Scleroderma should have a powdery sporemass, or be black/purple, or purple with white veins, or lilac-colored.
