Collection location: near Snoqualmie Pass, Washington, USA [Click for map]
Almost perfect ram horn circulation(similar to growth habit of G. lucidum) on smaller caps. The smaller specimens in first 3 images were completely surrounding this Western hemlock stump. The second series of images are from the now fallen tree top a few feet away in the canopy.
Even if the substrate moves Ganoderma oregonense mycelium continues to do its job as a saprophyte(forest recycler basically) of Western hemlock and sometimes Douglas fir trees. This log will decrease in its lignin and chitin content as the mycelium feeds- until nothing is left but soil eventually.
Elevation: approx. 3000ft.
