Depends on the weather. Temperature, moisture, presence of molds etc. It also depends on the species. Some fruitbodies don't survive their second day, others survive over several years.

mycelium Mycelium typically forms pinheads (primordia) where it is about to fruit. This is something you won't very likely be able to see on mycelium growing in the wild. It's something you look for when growing mushrooms yourself in controlled conditions.
