is this typical of either Amidella species?

remember, we don’t get amidellas in the west … or at least, I have never seen one, in 25 years of looking!

on upper stipe would appear to support “volvata.” But this one appears to be a rather small, short specimen, which points toward “pseudovolvata”. However, the photos appear to show a lack of marginal striations on the cap. As I understand volvata and pseudovolvata, each of these should show short striations, especially on the white parts where there is no scaly covering.
