Recognized by sight: What looks like the collar of a volva is actually a ring-like volval remnant sitting at the top of the bulb. To quote RET: “The volva is usually absent on the stipe’s bulb. On the other hand, there are often parts of the volva’s intenal limb remaining as a loose, rather thick, felted ring around the base of the stipe (lying on the top of the bulb) or as a rather robust felted patch or patches in roughly the same position; these remnants are pinkish brown to white with pinkish regions”.

Hi Dave

This mushroom was too pretty to pick, so I can’t show you the root. I’d call it A. daucipes.

the rooting stipe base which one expects to see on daucipes? Is it possible this is a very scaly example of something from the volvata complex?
