I went back to look at the caps for signs of the fibrous layer below the warts…

that is an indicator for A. ravenelii; however, I cannot pick up that level of detail because of glare. I suggest blocking direct sun and not using flash. Bring in light to the subject mushroom with a small group of reflectors made by covering cardboard with aluminum foil. I suggest making three pairs of these reflectors and taping each pair with heavy sealing type on the NON-reflecting side…so that they look like the covers of books. Since they are foldable, they will often stand up without other support. In a wind, you’ll need a set of friendly hands.

Very best,

Rod

seeing the bulbs on the stems would make a lot of difference.

I agree with placement in Lepidella.

On the guess that the bulb keeps going down into the soil for about 400 percent more of its visible length (or maybe more), rhopalopus is a possibility.

Very best,

Rod
