As with the last two RMCs, this year we have chosen to feature an often-overlooked species of fungus to inspire others to learn about the many fascinating facets of the Fungal Queendom.

This year's Featured Fungus is Schizophyllum commune, or simply Split Gill. A potent edible and medicinal species found around the world, this beautiful species is commonly overlooked due to its small stature. In many ways it exemplifies the misunderstood nature of fungi, which can even be found amongst the Queendom's greatest advocates.

The Split Gill theme will run throughout the RMC this year and the genus will be featured in several presentations and events. Join us in celebrating this amazing mushroom!
