From looking at Arora I think these are L. pyriforme. They were terrestrial in a localized area that could’ve indicated buried wood. Found the rhizomorphs (roots) that Arora mentions. Spines were very small. Okay, so I got this one really wrong! Lycoperdon perlatum it is.

The spines look conical like in Lycoperdon perlatum.
