Is that it is a developmental abnormality – I’ve seen it in other species, but it seems to be rare – less common even than the ‘rosette’ abnormality that we see in Russula and Cantharellus (which is probably genetic), and also less often than the ‘piggybacking’ found in Boletus, Clitocybe, and Russula (which is probably due to post-primordium fusion of adjacent fruitbodies because of quirks of relative positioning and differential growth).
Amanita rita’s notes suggest that this particular ‘moat-gilled’ abnormality may be environmentally-induced.
interestingly enuf, there were also other Cort fruit bodies of that species, in other places, with that look.
on that larger one. what’s going on there?
