Recognized by sight: G.lucidum(Ling chi) grows exclusively on hardwoods such as Plum, maple etc. not conifers. This time of year in WA is an abundant explosion of these beautiful related(annual) conks. Great find! You can dry and make tea from these species-potent anti bacterial and immune tonic.
Also: this tree the fruitbodies are on is a Hemlock it looks like. 90% of the G.oregonense and G.tsugae I find are on that tree species- just a hint for future forays :)
