not confident

I'm not confident enough to say 'I agree', but I thought Calvatia/Lycoperdon/Handkea excipuliformis before I saw that's what was suggested. (Couldn't remember which genus is the current one.) But I do find puffballs pretty tricky.

I would probably go for Handkea utriformis with its thick stem but not sure.
