means I’m stymied. Original descriptions of Ganoderma relied more on host tree than on spore size, since almost all Ganoderma spores are so close to each other.

G. applanatum – conifers and some hardwoods
G. tsugae – hemlock
G. lucidum – originally collected from plum in China

they were growing off of oak i believe.
they were all found within 2 feet of each other.
they were all found on the same tree.

the lower specimen looks like classic G. curtisii. But the upper specimen is colored more like G. tsugae. Any idea of what the possible substrate species is/was?
