These were found in the northern section of the Turkey Creek Unit. Very interesting puffball and noticed that Richard Kneal just posted a find in Florida. As they age they exude a yellow-orange juice that stains everything. The one in the upper left of the first photo was quite ripe. The spores and gleba turn a rusty brown. The spores were in the range of 4.0-4.5 microns and slightly spiny.
