there was a bit more volva, but it came off during excavation.

Sure looks a lot like it. Moist soil under cottonwoods is the right neighborhood.

Special credit for getting the whole sac out of the ground. It’s usually really loosely connected to the stem and REALLY hard to recover on many occasions.
