looks like it has well-developed skin on the cap and that the volval warts are separated from the skin. This is not true of A. thiersii, which lacks a well-developed pileipellis (cap skin) and has a volva that is attached to the cap flesh below it. Also, this species seems to have a dog-legged bulb on the base of the stem.

If I did receive this item in the recent packet of materials, I can check it out.

Did you notice an odor?
