    I saw a few of these while walking in the woods. There is a natural hole thru the cap and stem. Does anyone know what it is?

    how odd.

    Does it have gills?


    Seeing as it's a mottle appearance and maybe decaying, perhaps that hole is insect or some type of worm burrowing?

    don't know.

    Yes, it has gills. They are pretty beat up, but the hole is smooth and perfect, like it was made that way. I saw several of them.

    just an aside;
    mycology is the study of mushrooms
    more mycologists die each year from eating poisonous mushrooms than everyone else combined. sounds kinda risky to me
