These puffballs definately do not resemble classic gem-studded puffballs. Gem-studded have spines all over that break at the very tips. Even if these are closer to spore distribution, there should be spines 1-5 mm tall. Look alikes is the pig skinned puffball, but it has purplish brownish interior and is poisonous.
