Unknown spotting

Description:

All dried up, but looking like a bowl, size of an adult man fist. Pic N° 3 upside down.

Habitat:

Seen close to border with Russia, in a very cold valley, surrounded by a very tall Caucasus mountain peaks, some of which reach over 5000m. Valley itself was on some 1900m of altitude, and is regularly beaten by harsh winds, and is composed of barren rocks, montane grasslands and coniferous or thorny-shrubs groves.

Exploded puffball. Maybe Calvatia sp. Not too sure. You could probably narrow it down based on the location and size by consulting local resources
