Not too far from the type location for G.polychromum, in Study of some Ganoderma species (1980) Steyaert mentions the orginal Latin description including concentric zonations in the context but mentions that it is absent in the English description and on those grounds considered it synonymous with G.resinaceum. DNA evidence indicates a separate but closely related species in California making G.polychromum a likely valid name. More clarification is needed and any similar samples are much appreciated.
