We have received this material and accessioned it to Rod’s herbarium.

It could be the same.

It’s exannulate and has a striate cap margin and a ring of volva around the top of the bulb.

It looks as though the cap surface dried in situ; so a color change is possible. The bulb is more pronounced than in the pinkish specimens.

It looks like it got a bit old before it was dried. We can take a look at the material, although I am uncertain as to what information we will be able to extract from it.

Very best,
