Go with Christian’s comment.
It could be anything you can imagine. In the field photography, I have switched to PENTAX (now RICOH) WG-3 GPS because it is a “dependable, heavy-duty imaging partner in harsh, demanding outdoor conditions” that records the coordinates of the spots where I am taking photos. Unfortunately, the WG-3 camera is entirely automatic and its close-up photos do not have any depth of field. From about 7 to 10 photos, you can select one that is so-so for posting on MO. In this particular case, I did not take enough photos that would show your volva more clearly :-). I would not expect volva in the genus Laccaria, and none of the voucher specimens that we collected and dried would have it.
BTW, would you know any medium-priced outdoor camera that would have a GPS sensor and have more picture-taking options than the WG-3, such as manual setting of ASA, f-stops, etc.?
That said, could there be a volva at the base of photo 3?
