The material has been received and accessioned. The volva does seem to be almost complete absent from the stem; however, as dried, there is a wavy dark line going around the lower stipe. This suggests that the mushroom is something close to “A. borealisorora” and “A. rhacopus” (if the are different, which is seeming less likely these days).

Thanks for sending the material, we will schedule sampling of the material.

Very best,
