my mistake with photos

Do you remember this having a base, Eva?

If there was a whitish, slighly enlarged base, which might have separated while picking it, this is likely Scleroderma, possible S. citrinum. If, as the photos of the gleba (interior) seem to show this has no sterile base, it might be a puffball.
