…is about to have kittens. I wonder what’s freaking him out. Could it be C. booniana? :-)

Apologies, it is, no doubt, Calvatia booniana A.H. Sm.

This fruting body would need to have a tough leathery exoperidium to be Mycenastrum.

Why Mycenastrum?

I need to have a really tough leathery skin or exo- peridium to be this species. From the images it looks like a Calvatia. You will need to look at the gleba tissue, primarily the spores and the ornamentation of the spores to determine if this is what you think it is or not.
