Collection location: Alta Vista city park Olympia, Washington, USA [Click for map]
One single varnish capped specimen(on right side) of Western hemlock- with three G.applanatum only feet away on the same substrate. I see this all the time, just don’t document it. I finally thought I should. Completely different Ganoderma species can be inoculated at either end of a substrate and share it in small pockets. Hence it is way slower of a parasite, rather than saprophyte(at least early on) than Fomitopsis species. If you see a ton of red belts(F.pinicola group) on a conifer log- you won’t generally see a Reishi. However, G. applanatum, G.oregonense, G.resinaceum, G. tsugae can all be inoculated in section and fruit relatively close to the inoculation sight-separately. Pretty awesome species to watch, especially on Western hemlock.
Elevation: Sea level.
Temp: mid 50’s.
