I don’t think this is likely to be albovolvata.

That species is described as having a graying, somewhat fragile volva that leaves patches on the cap. (Odd to call the species albovolvata when its volva becomes gray.) The cap is described as gray. In the present case it is a rich brown with a thin yellow zone on the inner edge of dark brown zone including the marginal (tuberculate) striations. The stem is undecorated in the accompanying photograph. In the case of albovolvata, the stem is said to be decorated with gray fibrils in a zebroid pattern.

Very best,

Rod Tulloss

From memory there was no evidence of partial veil

That was the only photo

Was there a skirt on the stem?
