Notes: About a 1/2 mile area in Dunwoody, Georgia where Ganoderma Curtisii has consistently appeared over the last few years. Antlers usually beginning in mid-summer, fruiting bodies developing over the summer and fall. In this climate the bugs and / or mold prevent the majority from making it more that a season.
Found on hardwood stumps / buried roots of old hardwoods (Oaks previously, although today’s stump appeared to be of older maple. New for me and not 100% on that). Mostly trees cut in previous years for development. Don’t be mislead by picture, they were growing out of roots coming from a more distant stump.
I am still not scientific enough about my mushroom hunting however all visual features and location seem very characteristic of G. Curtisii and this is a known location. However, please correct me if anyone has additional thoughts.
One of the fruiting bodies was lacquered on both sides (in pictures) ! First time I have seen that.
Typically I slice and boil for tea. Odor I find pleasant, especially at young stage. Aromatically musty odor I find in other ganoderma and woody polypores in general. Taste, mild bitter tone but smooth.
