However, to try to make them into fully trained stipe lookalikes, as seems to be the new suggestion, is a waste of what they do.
Notably, the stipes contained a high amount of dry matter (DM), total carbohydrate (TC) and available carbohydrate (AC), and energy value (EV).
In contrast to the results verified in this study, Mol and Wessels [24] studied the differences in wall structure between substrate hyphae and hyphae of fruit-body stipes in Agaricus bisporus and concluded that there was no significant difference in gross chemical wall composition of the two hyphal types.
The researchers compared not only these three species, but also wild versus cultivated fungi and three different botanical parts: the whole fruiting body, the pileus (cap) and the stipe (stalk).
Epiphytic; rhizomes 8-12 mm diam., very short-creeping, horizontal; rhizome scales 5-10 x 1-1.5 mm, linear-lanceolate, brown-yellowish, marginally entire to sparce ciliate, plane, deciduous with old; phyllopodia present, 10-20 mm long, robust, persistent; fronds 50-68 cm long, 1-3 (-10) mm distant; stipes ca.
Description.--Fruiting bodies: Lateral attached, bracket-like caps without stipes; odor sharp, strong and unpleasant.
Outside the inquiry Mac Neice said: "Our position is that this was dealt with properly on the day by a very experienced stipe in Simon Cowley, a former rider.
Epiphytic; rhizome compact, 3-8 mm diam.; rhizome scales 5-12 x 0.5-0.8 mm, linear, brown to atropurpureous, marginally entire; phyllopodia 5-12 mm; fronds (15-) 20-42 cm long; stipes 2/5-3/5 the frond length; stipe scales 2-4 x ca.
Darley said yesterday: "I was sent it yesterday and have only looked at it briefly, but it's disappointing if there are guidelines for the stipes and not for everyone.
"It's like an ongoing training process for the stipes - it's an aid designed to improve consistency and decision making.
("Thallus" is the term for the combination of a stipe and the attached blade.) The alga's reproductive structures are contained in the papillae on the surface of each thallus, and, as a consequence, the potential reproductive output for a thallus is roughly proportional to its surface area (Bell, 1992).
