I do not think these are

I do not think these are Earth Balls (and they are certainly not Earth Stars - see ) because they do not have the warty skin of that species. It looks like a puffball of some kind to me, but someone more expert than me will no doubt be able to tell you more.

I agree with Jonathan.
One specimen in the top-right of the image shows a distinct stem. These are most-likely to be Common Puffball Lycoperdon perlatum, but they are badly weathered and it is probably only safe to call them Lycoperdon sp.

Peziza Vesiculosa

Could they possibly be Peziza Vesiculosa? I agree they are nort Earth Stars.

puff ball

I am also no expert but my instinct would also be puff balls.
