NO1367 : Puffball fungus

Puffball fungus
Puffball fungus
One of several of these and other fungi growing under pine trees in the garden of Dalhenzean Lodge, Glen Shee.

I am grateful to Geograph Moderator Rob Farrow who has suggested this identification -
'this is one of the stemmed "puffballs", and I would identify it specifically as Handkea excipuliformis (also known as Lycoperdon saccatum).
