Can't post a real pick because my cam is busted..... I did notice something strange today though.... the toadstools reproduce by budding from the base correct????? Well it looks as if this thing is budding from surface... as if part of the surface is going to detach ..... underneath one part of the surface there seems to be a small second stalk..... and it's not attached all that well ... it seems as if it's separating from the rest of the "surface"...... any ideas.... does this sound like one of the things you were speaking of?????
The species I was refering to has a more tappered crown. It looks much like a morel mushroom rather than the wide head of a portabella. Toadstools do bud from the base but they will also split top down it just takes much longer.
