Is there a chance that you might find A. torrendii again in 2016?

I’d be very interested in trying for the DNA.

Very best,

The shape of the volva would vary depending how much of the volva…

is pulled away on the cap surface. This in turn could well be variable due to habitat providing more or less moisture and/or different amounts of moisture during different stages of growth.

Very best,

And volva of one of the specimens has left there, it’s similar to last photo. It is a bit different from cup like volva that I see in google images, but still it’s clearly a volva. Would it be because the specimens are buried between mosses?

Hum… I think so

but to be honest, I’m not sure of seeing the volva either, I have to confirm that (if possible, tomorrow), because I think that the volva broken up when I picked up the specimen. What I’m sure: the cap separates easily from the stem. The inner surface of the cap, and the flesh inside is granular and not dry (juicy). All fruit body is white and less than 2-3cm.
However looking to 2nd and 3rd picture, I think we could see what seems to be a volva.

Wonderful that you had the good luck to find this.

From the photos I am not sure of something. Did you see the saccate volva at the base of the stem?

Very best,

Rod
