DAVID’s comment: The symbiosis with a fungus is not unusual, but the reproductive method is like the hermaphroditic reproduction seen in animals. An odd twist to the usual evolutionary developments. It indicates that evolutionary progress is open to many, many roads that lead to survival.

It is indeed truly amazing how many different ways organisms arrange their own modes of survival. And we must always remember that vast numbers of them have NOT survived. It all seems to point to autonomous, inventive intelligences which sometimes succeed and sometimes fail in the great higgledy-piggledy of life’s history.
