Key features are the thick peridium, absence of a subgleba, relatively large spores that are warted to spinulose, and it looks like the capillitium has some slit-like pores.

Daniel, I can’t remember the exact habitat

for this specimen, but it was growing on the edge of a group of trees in a rustic campground. I think they were some kind of true fir but not positive.

With Pinus and Abies?

Looks like true fir and pine needles on the ground.
