I almost didn’t take any pictures of it, glad I did. Thank you for your expertise Dr. Tulloss!

is more like the irregular circles or irregular garlands that one sees on A. rhopalopus than the circles of small pyramids that one sees in the same region on polypyramis. Also the bulb shape is more suggestive of rhopalopus. So I suggest the latter name.
