Well... Sclerotia is a sort of survival tactic in the life of the mycelium. When cold weather approaches, or floods, or any bad weather... certain mushrooms species's mycelium can form small "stones" or super dense bundles of mycelium almost nut-like in texture. It forms well on rye grass seed when in complete darkness for 6 months (for tampensis) and in 6 weeks (for mexicana) The Mushroom Cultivator by paul stamets greatly details both of these species of mushrooms, and provides many details on the formation of sclerotia on pages 204-209.
