Collection location: Forest near Elgin St., Pembroke, Ontario, Canada [Click for map]

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

Notes:
Aside from what looks more like a collared bulb than a membranous volva, resembles a destroying angel. I took an up-from-beneath shot of one and slugs had eaten the gills. Found in Zone 48.
