I believe I can see a white volval sac.

the bottom of the stipe is a bit out of focus in the second pic. Richard, it looks to me as if there is no volval sac. I can’t tell if the grayish lumps on the lower stipe are bits of the volva or bits of the substrate. If I am interpreting the photo correctly then this species would be close to A. sororcula and A. rhacopus Y. Lamoureux nom. prov.
