not quite right for coriaceum

I am not sure of the species ID of this specimen. I would need to study it for a good determination. The peridium of what I have called H. coriaceum in the past is very smooth and polished and stains pinkish to pink-brown and is easily separable from the gleba, popping off like an eggshell at times.

As usual send me an email if you want me to look at it for ID purposes.
