I don’t know about the fibrils

under the skirt but I will look for it the next time I find this. I think the answer to your second question is yes.

Thanks for the information.


Is the underside of the skirt attached to the stem by many fibrils?

Am I right that the top of the bulb is fairly flat and (while it may have subtle raised rings on the top surface) does it completely lack a membrane rising from the edge of the flat top?

If the answers to all the questions are “yes,” then I think this is A. abrupta with all the pyramidal warts washed off.

Very best,
