I can’t really tell if the volval sac is turning gray in the upper portion.

If that were the case, then I’d consider this closer to A. sinicoflava than to the proposed species A. rhacopus./A. borealisorora (A. ceciliae sensu auct. amer.). However, if the saccate volva is not becoming distinctly gray on the upper part of the free limb, then this is an undescribed species of section Vaginatae; and none of the above names would apply.

Very best,
