The nonstriate margin, the copious and persistent partial veila and warts on…

the outside of a volva with a submembranous or membranous innermost layer is like no Amidella that I ever saw. You seem to have found something unique. Warts on the outside of a volva is found in section Vaginatae in the Old World Tropics of Africa and Southeast Asia. But the margin of the cap is nonstriate. I wouldn’t know what section to put this in without using a full flown taxonomic work-up.

No specimen?

very best,

Rod
