The aethalium of Lycogala terrestre is initially a simple blob from which papillae are temporarily extruded whilst partitions of cortical material running into it split to form the airfilled pseudocapillitium. Mitochondria aligned alongside these partitions appear responsible for the pumping of water out of them, resulting in this splitting.
