"RELATIONSHIP STRUCTURE AND SEXUAL ORIENTATION IN MUSHROOMSWhile the pairing of two, sexually compatible partners is the most common relationship structure, it is not the rule. Not all Basidiomycete relationships are monogamous or capable of producing offspring. Occasionally, a partnered mycelium will invite in another mycelium, forming a triad. Two pairs of hyphae can also fuse to produce four-partner relationships, with each nucleus contributing its genetic knowledge and abilities to the healthy functioning of the system. This fungal version of polyamory, known as a polykaryon, can go on to create strong relationships and healthy offspring. Sometimes, a fusion occurs between partners who are somatically compatible, but infertile.This is analogous to homosexuality in humans. These dikaryons can live together indefinitely, leading healthy lives. Without expending huge amounts of energy on reproduction, they have all the more life force to channel into their work of decomposition, symbiosis, or parasitis"Not sure what you mean with asexual.We got quite a few PE crosses out there:PE6, Melmac, Tidal Wave, Kape, APEthose are the ones I know.For example APE, its a cross of PF Albino and PE, both mutants.Going with your theory APE could't exist how it exists today because both mutations would've "eliminated" each other.If we take a look at all these crosses, they all don't have the classic PE dick look, something I see in the first pictures of this thread is wavy caps.Some Melmacs and Tidal Wave (both PE crosses) do also have the wavy caps.How would you explain the mixed fruits if not a cross?
What proof do you have that these are crosses and not selection and cloning of mature fruitbodies?
Be careful with your wording without evidence. All both of us have are theories, neither has proof. And while I appreciate your enthusiasm, without the science to back it up all both of us have are theories.
