The best I can say is if you look at http://mushroomobserver.org/image/show_image/536866, you can see dirt & mycelium seems to make up the exterior of the bulb. But, one part of the bulb came up quite high and sturdy (see the piece sticking up). Pretty much, that image encompasses what I saw in real-life.

No rooting was noticed.

Do you remember…

…how it looked like? Was there a saccate volva (as in sect. Amidella)? Was it abrupt or marginate? Was it deeply rooting? Thanks.
