I agree. it would be helpful, but I didn’t collect much information on it. As weiliiiiii said, you can see the volva in the second photo. Apart from that, all I can tell you it that it was very soft and weak and fell apart readily when I moved the leaf litter away to photograph it.

You can see the sack like volva at the base of the stem in the second pic.

It would be helpful if the details of the base of the stem were shown.
