23,000 Sexes and Counting

Apparently there is a type of fungus that has 23,000 sexes and is still adding more.  Yes, they are biologically distinct sexes in that the configuration of specific components determines which individuals are or are not able to reproduce.  I am just all asquee over this.  I look at reactionaries having a wiggins over the fact that humans have more than 2 biological sexes and want to rub their noses in this.

I rather imagine that Erishkegal devised these things.  It's just her style.  Galaturri and kurgarri as far as the eye can see.
