Pleurotus

is seldom cracked. Instead of cracking in age, it wrinkles. Pleurotus also likes to grow in groups: you seldom see it solitary. Pleurotus gills are typically some variation of white. The mycelium is white also.

It is also very easy to grow, and easy to get the substrate for. Grows readily on coffee grounds, which are often sterile to begin with. Have your local Starbucks or commercial store save you some (5 gallons is more than enough), and buy a Pleurotus from your local store to innoculate with. 3-6 months later, voila! Instand mushroom garden. A great demonstration for school kids about recycling.
