there is a button in the background that has had the cap pushed back and has the bottom of the short conical bulb showing with a relatively thick “cable” of hyphae projecting from the bottom of the bulb. This sort of bulb is characteristic of A. abrupta. So I think abrupta is probably a good name to use for this one.
