This specimen lacked any visible lacquer unlike G. curtisii and is a good ways outside the known range of that species. Bob Blanchette has a large collection of ITS sequences from many different Ganoderma specimens so that will help us place this sample phylogenetically.
It is similar to it, but I don’t think this is curtisii, it seems to be a bit north. Curtisii is usually a more southeastern mushroom, but has been seen as far north as Connecticut.
If you’re going to sequence it, you should take as many pictures as possible. This will help when we try to apply morphological information to molecular data.
It is quite interesting,almost like a cross between G.applanatum and some other Ganoderma. very interesting.
I actually collected the larger fruitbody and gave it to Bob Blanchette’s Lab at the University of Minnesota. They are going to culture it and sequence it, so that should give us some good info. I too found this to be a unique specimen.
This is an interesting Ganoderma, do you still know where it is?
