Slightly embarrassed that a quick Google could have told me that. I figured that was mushroom hunter slang or some species I didn't know.
I did find this so any novice puffball hunters should take heed:
Are puffballs poisonous?
While most puffballs are not poisonous, some often look similar to young agarics, especially the deadly Amanitas, such as the death cap or destroying angel mushrooms. It is for this reason that all puffballs gathered in mushroom hunting are cut in half lengthwise.
