The narrow spores are fairly distinctive; that ought to be valuable in identifying this species. Do you have some spore measurement data?

I noticed that there is a flap of volva overlapping both the bulb and the cap in the immature specimen on the right in the first photograph. Does the button specimen have warts on the cap as in the large central specimen? I am wondering if the button might be a different species.
