Observation 297980: Lycoperdon Pers.

Notes:
Distinctly deep olive green gleba(interior spore bearing mass of all puffball like fungi), peridium(outer skin) thinner than S. citrinum, dotted and minutely pimpled(chocolate brown tones-abundant at apex). 3-7cm long(far larger than a Lycoperdon such as L. pyriforme) which this looked superficially similar to initially when I first encountered the fruiting-but obviously larger.

Substrate: Coniferous bark chip mulch/along cement path to our property.

Odor: pungently fungal-pleasant, slightly sweet.

Long rhizome connections to bark chips and substrate at base.

Elevation: Sea level.
