To risk trespassing and angering the homeowner. I am interested in a fruitbody from that observation, that culture is already in the hands of a friend of mine for our research.

I am interested in similar finds in the future though.

I can return and attempt to take a cross section/sample of these. I am only hesitant because I don’t want to touch this persons property without permission but she refused to answer her door when I knocked today(I saw her watching me through the window).

Also, if you are interested in other California material, I had a buddy of mine clone and cultivate the specimen in this observation: http://mushroomobserver.org/169273?q=2JekM . I may be able to send you a fruitbody and/or slant if you would like.

It is morphologically more like members of the G.resinaceum group which tend to grow on hardwood not conifers. It is close to the type location of a rather cryptic species, G.polychromum (hardwood). I have noticed sequences labeled G.oregonense (softwood) from Genbank turning up as members of the G.resinaceum group when phylogenetic trees are made. These are some interesting things I am trying to fit together. I am very interested in Californian material for sequencing. G.oregonense will have a light almost white flesh, while the resinaceum group will have a tan flesh possibly with visible darker zonations.

Care to be a little less vague?

That is unfortunate, it might be something interesting.

Stump appears to be Pine…

I didn’t disturb anything because the homeowner did not answer the door.

Is coniferous? Can you show a cross section of the Ganoderma or will you let it grow?
