I completely understand that some more photos and/or descriptions would be beneficial in the ID of this specimen but my recent posts are a collection of unidentified specimens I no longer have possession of. It was my intention to present the photos to the MO community in hopes of steering the ID to at least a general direction. Thank you for your help!

I applaud your photos, Luke.

But need to see closer than this. I’m pretty sure this is a puffball, but can’t tell what genus. Need to provide more information like: odor, photo of specimen sliced in half, interior of the spore chamber (and color of spore mass). Also helpful would be an additional photo of the top of the fungus, taken as close as you can get.
