This phrase may be helpful to avoid in general. “False gills” makes an incorrect statement on the uniqueness – morphological, functional, phylogenetic, or otherwise – of the gills produced in one of the 11 orders housing lamellate fungi. The phrase is a perpetual source of misidentifications – assuming broad-gilled Cantharellus specimens must be something else.
