Schizophyllum Facts

Been getting some love for those Schizophyllum commune pics I posted on Sunday. Seems like this is the crazy dude of the Fungi world.

This just in from Nick Aplin on the Sussex Fungi Yahoo group:

"Did you know that this species has over 25,000 sexes? Or that it has been isolated from human lung and brain tissue? It also sometimes likes to live in silage bales, dogs (yes, dogs) and old people's toenails."

I did not know any of that! I can't even begin to conceptualise what some of it means...

Do you have more Schizophyllum facts? Post them here!
