austropulchella f. mcalpiniana, which you just recently sent me. Since I’m not familiar with the development of that taxon’s fruiting body, I’m not sure, but the rings at the base of the stem, the lack of a partial veil, the shortish and moderately spaced marginal striations on the cap, lumpy white-surfaced warts, etc. all seem a rather good match. Can you tell if the warts start white and become yellow or start yellow and become white? In the previous collections’ photos it looked as if some of the volva on the cap was yellow and some was white. Can you help me with your eyes on this question?

Very best,
