I’m curious to learn if the structure around the stipe base…[edited]

is the stem splitting or the presence of a limbate volva. It looks as though there are yellow, powdery volval warts on the cap (second image, mostly left of center, foreground). There also appears to be a dot of the same material (same color and texture) on the lower stem in the third image (highest magnification). If that is true, then the structure at the stipe base is probably caused by splitting in the flesh of the stem. Also, another interesting character is the sterile extension of a couple of mm that hangs from the edge of the cap. Interesting specimen.
