Primordia formation and basidiocarp maturation have separate requirements for light. Both show maximum activity in the 440-470 nm range but with slightly different peak values. Maturation requires over 2 orders of magnitude longer exposures to light than does initiation. Fluence-response relationships of primordia initiation are complex and do not show reciprocity.
