good to see your illustration of the cut ocreata stipe here.

in my experience, I have also seen perfectly solid stipes in ocreata, as well as discrete chambers within an otherwise solid stipe, as well as those partially chambered hollow stipes like you show here.

the point being … variability is the norm, and all features must match for a good ID.

even phalloides can sometimes show a hollow stipe like a velosa or the other edible amanitas. I first discovered this at a long ago MSSF Fungus Fair, when I cut a phalloides open at our edible mushrooms table, to show a fair goer how phalloides always had a solid stipe in comparison with calyptroderma! Not that time, it didn’t! Lesson learned, all around.
