It's akin to a mule most often being sterile. There is the somatic viability--that is, the viability of the organism to do its normal things to live, which a mule does well. Then there is the sexual viability, the meiotic intricacies where if things are not just right on the molecular level, the pathway is terminated.
It's easy to see why a mule might be sterile, horse and a donkey are a bit different to the eye. . .I don't know why *specifically* you get somatic viabiliity without meiotic/sexual viability, the latter just seems more "touchy". Actually, now that I think about it, you probably do get lack of somatic viability. . .those crossings just terminate in the womb [or quart jar ].
This is assuming that the lack of sporulation is a function of genetics. . .if getting a good sporeprint is the problem, that could also be a function of the ambient rH, the particular cap., etc.
