The species was first described in 1885 by American mycologist Harvey Willson Harkness, under the name "Lycoperdon sculptum". Harkness, who called it "a curious and strikingly beautiful species", found fruit bodies growing at elevations between in the Sierra Nevada mountains. Although he noted that "in appearance it differs so much from any species known to us, as to be almost deemed worthy of generic rank", he thought that placement in the puffball genus "Lycoperdon" was the most appropriate classification, despite its unusual cortex. Harkness's type collections were destroyed in the fires following the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. In 1904, Curtis Gates Lloyd considered the species better placed in "Calvatia", because of the resemblance of its deeply colored capillitial threads (coarse thick-walled cells found in the gleba) to those of "Calvatia
"; he called the species "Calvatia sculptum". The mushroom is known by several common names, including the "sculpted puffball", the "sculptured puffball", the "pyramid puffball", and the "Sierran puffball".
In her 1935 "Mycologia" article, American mycologist Elizabeth Eaton Morse noted the existence of an abundant and widely distributed puffball of the western United States that was commonly misidentified as "Calvatia sculpta", although it differed from that species in having extensively branched capillitial threads. The puffball had characteristics that aligned it with several other taxa. The peridium was similar to those of "Calvatia sculpta", "Calvatia
" (now known as "Calvatia bovista"), "Scleroderma flavidum", and "Scleroderma aurantium" (now "Scleroderma citrinum"); the rooting base was similar to "Bovistella"; and the structure of the capillitial threads reminiscent of "Bovista", "Bovistella", and "Mycenastrum". However, the new species had a unique combination of characteristics and did not fit neatly into any already-described genera. As a result, Morse circumscribed the new genus "Calbovista" to contain "Calbovista sculpta". The type collection was made at Soda Springs, California in May 1934 at an elevation of . Morse's publication of the genus was invalid because it lacked a description in Latin—a requirement of the International Code of Botanical Nomenclature that was implemented effective January 1, 1935. The genus and species were published validly with a Latin description by Michelle Seidl in 1995.
