It was initially described as a morphological species of global distribution and then revealed to be a species complex encompassing several cryptic species of more narrow distribution, as typical of many mushroom-forming Basidiomycota...The gills, which produce basidiospores on their surface, split when the mushroom dries out, earning this mushroom the common name split gill. It has more than 28,000 sexes;.individuals of any sex are compatible for mating with all but three of the other sexes...It is common in rotting wood, but can also cause disease in humans
