Used references: Mushroom Expert Key. Only one possibility. Peridium does not appear yellowish, a prerequisite for S. citrinum. But final determination depends on height of the pyramidal scales.

It is a Scleroderma.

But which one of the scaley peridium Sclerodermas? Probably not S. citrinum, as there does not appear to be much yellow on the peridium, citrine-like. Too young for most photos of S. texense, which turns brown and splits Geaster-like into rays. But might possibly be S. echinatum, depending on how tall the pyramidal warts on the peridium are.
