Cool. Heck. I hadn’t seen it until you said something. I’m thinking maybe a parasitic fungus there. Don’t really know though.

There are perpendicular lines of hyphae between some of the gills. Is this a parasitic fungus, or just the way this kind of mushroom grows?

Can you explain in caveman terms so that I can understand please Dan?

That last photo looks really cool. I do not recall ever seeing such perpendicular cross members between the gills of any mushroom.
