that looked like Lycoperdon are… Lycoperdon. At first I thought I saw a stipe differentiated from a cap, but this was just the sterile base breaking away from the spore case. Interestingly, when I picked a few of these this morning, the spore cases had almost completely broken away from the bases, and the bases were hollow.

Micro of immature gleba revealed presence of capillitial threads.

That’s a believable proposal, Jacob.
