Recognized by sight: Ganoderma curtisii is usually much more yellow, with a smoother pileus surface.Where resinaceum tends to be poorly formed and more wrinkled. Curtisii in a similar environment would tend to have a well formed prominant stipe, where resinaceum struggles to form stipes and often fruits right on the ground in more Northern latitudes.

Would need to see the spore-bearing surface (underside) to confirm Ganoderma. Does has the shellac-coated appearance of Ganoderma, though. G. curtisii usually has more yellows and oranges in the cap color.
