No specimen available

Hypogeous fungi found in or near animal burrow. Peridium is brown, green and bluish; with almost shiny exterior when fresh. No dirt or little dirt adherring. Gleba has locules, but just a few. Interior (gleba) is creamy, with white veins; dessicating rather rapidly.

I have not seen nor heard of this before. It will be interesting to see if I can get spores from it.
