question 14: Thick or widely spaced gills
Turn the mushroom upside down to have a look at the number of gills. There are two possibilities:
- the gills' count is small (less than 15-20 gills per quarter mushroom), and they can be thick and distant;
- the gills are very numerous, crowded;
Generally speaking, the gills of mushrooms are rather crowded.

|The gills here are not very crowded, (we count about 17 gills whose length is more than 2/3 of the cap radius), select "yes" in this example||   ||The gills here are on the contrary very crowded, select then "no" in this example||   ||The gills here are distant and thick, select then "yes" in this example||   ||The gills here are crowded, select then "no" in this example|
