I remember your observation, it did look similar, it is likely a related but separate species. I would be hesitant to call it G.applanatum. Definitely within the same clade though.

in an earlier observation showing a ganoderma applanatum, I posted that it looked much as what I’ve been finding regularly in Japan. This “megaloma” however seems as similar if not more so. I’ve got a few ganoderma observations. tea from it is truly good tasting, mellow and not bitter unless you go for a very long low boil steep….

Just updated my vote. You may be right in assuming G. megaloma based on coloration on the pileus. There is something different about this fungus that may differentiate it from G. applanatum. Therefore I gave your proposal a positive vote due to my lack of sufficient data concerning any positive features of this observation.
