Observation 98650: Lycoperdon Pers.

A medium-sized stalked puffball found during a hike up the Santa Rita Mountains. Looks to have various holes on the peridium, and the spines should be a big factor in determining its true ID. Occurs solitarily.

This is a candidate I came up with that looks to match it quite well. Let me know if there’s any conflicting characteristics with this possible ID.

Thanks for the tip.

I’ll look into my guide in the genus Lycoperdon and see what candidates I can come up with, thanks again myxomop.
