Ponyboy, this is news to me. However, I do know that sometimes people don't look closely enough to see if the mushroom found is an immature mushroom of another kind that has gills. So for all you mushroom hunters, before eating a puffball, be sure to flip it over and make sure there is no stem. When you cut it in half vertically, there will not be any seam at all and must be pure white.
And, yes, if unsure, don't eat it. TrueColours -- find a long-time local expert who can identify it for you if you're not sure.
