Observation 279204: Ganoderma tsugae Murrill
When: 2017-06-17
Who: cmy610
No herbarium specimen

Notes: I think these are Ganoderma tsugae? I saw tons of it growing on dead fallen trees and snags. In one of the pictures, you can see one of the mushrooms was covered in some kind of dust. Mushrooms ranged in size from 3-10 inches wide. They were growing in a wet, deciduous forest along the Hudson River.

Were they growing on hemlock or a deciduous tree?

I believe the brown dust in one of your photos are spores that have settled on this mushroom from another that may have been above it.
