I forgot to mention, this piece could be seen as halfway from the Fibnif to the Cohartebeest, another fileswitching piece in my variant Hunterbeest which makes the most forward and backward Knight moves and the most sideways Camel moves. See if you can work out how the rankswitching Harterbeest itself moves before going to the link.

When I had a look at this page it was to make exactly the point of the Mushroom's similarity to the Fibnif. In particular it always moves an odd number of ranks and therefore cannot lose the move, and it also combines the Nightranker (aka Heavenly Horse), which is bound to one in four squares but of mixed colour, with a conventionally colourbound piece to form an unbound piece.

Just like a fibnif on steroids ;-)
