Mushroom with 3 mouths

Just noticed this last night and took a pic. Seems this mushroom has 3 mouths. Anyone ever seen this? Looks like a mutant.

Not looking to cut it. Just curious as to what would cause this freak of nature or if anyone has seen something similar. The colony of mushrooms it belongs too has started multiplying fast lately and the 3 mouth shroom is one of the latest offspring.

I've seen a longer, eliptical Ricordia once with 5 mouths on it! Would have bought it, but wasn't for sale...

Seems as though it started to split via binary fission, then stopped. Nothing to worry about, but certainly an oddity worth hanging on to!
