Observation 297511: Calvatia Fr.

Growing in grass in a public park in Northwest Georgia (Floyd County). Group of two lavender to purple, highly flattened fruit bodies with purple spores encapsulated within. It honestly looked like purple leaves or paper waste under the grass! Top is papery to velvety. Bottom tapers to a mycelial mass. I’m no expert, but my best guess is that this is a dried up, aged Calvatia cyathiformis (purple-spored puffball)? Any help is much appreciated!
