We have recieved this material and accessioned it to Rod’s Herbarium. We have scheduled it for DNA sequencing.

The second image shows a dark ring low on the stem.

This will probably persist in dried material. I believe it is the internal limb of the volva. This is a good marker for the rhacopus-like group of taxa.
