  SchCom-4291.jpg -  Schizophyllum commune  (CN: Split Gill) mushroom on 10"diam. tree stump on Norfolk near Strathmoor, Oakland, CA on Dec. 5, 2007; photo taken by Kay Loughman. ID supplied by Debbie Viess (BAMS), who says "This is a cosmopolitan mushroom found everywhere except Antarctica, and it has tremendous biological diversity. This is perhaps due to the fact that it has something like 28,000 distinct sexes (puts us humans to shame)! The best way to ID this mushroom other than its growth habit and tough hairy caps is to look at the gills...its common name is split-gill, and the brownish gills will divide as they approach the edges of the cap. Individual members of a mushroom species don't always look alike, no more that H. sapiens do!"
