If you pull mushrooms out of the ground as soon as you notice them, does that mean they'll never come back? Don't they have filiments of some kind under the ground? Or am i thinking of something else? :?

I don't think pulling mushrooms out of the ground has much effect on them, since like you said they have hyphae (="filaments") that grow under the ground. In many places the soil contains huge masses of fungal hyphae, so plucking few of the fruiting bodies does not get you rid of the fungus.

The hyphae have much bigger mass than the mushrooms

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
