Unusual Violet With Extra Spurs - What Is This?

I found some violets in my yard yesterday with multiple spurs per flower: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/158811701.

4 spurs

2 spurs

Anyone seen anything like this before and/or know what mechanism causes this?

Although these are not in México, Oscar González has an extraordinary breadth of knowledge which he shares with others.

I might tag him on the observation itself and ask the same mechanism question there. He is “oscargsol” on there.

edit to add: Here is where he once very kindly explained to me why one Tridax daisy I found looked so unusual.
