There is no Vulva sac and there is threads of white mycellum growing from the base. You can clearly see The white threads in these images. There are Scales on top of the cap. Id put it in the panathera group. Maybe Rod can chime in on this

shows what may be the remnants of a volval sac that stuck to the stipe as the mushroom grew, and ultimately tore in half. I’m proposing this hypothesis partly because this specimen shows other traits associated with section Vaginatae.
