Mushrooms were the roses in the garden of that unseen world, because the real mushroom plant was underground. The parts you could see - what most people called a mushroom - was just a brief apparition. A cloud flower. -Margaret Atwood
These species were all within 10 feet of eachother. This is remarkable for this fact: the anatomy of mushrooms are mostly the filaments running under the surface of the ground, the mycelium. *

The mycelium extend sometimes for hundreds of acres through the forest floor. The mushroom we see is just the flowering part. *
So these different... very different... mushrooms were all not just near eachother, they were interwoven with eachother. Isn't that cool? We are a lot like those mushrooms, we appear to be separate, but we are all interwoven together...
