Collection location: Port Charlotte, Florida, USA [Click for map]
Specimen kindly sent to me from Florida for study. Growing in woodchips. I suspected T.colossus from the photos, and confirmed via microscopy due to massive spore size and presence of chlamydospores.
Spores average 17x 10.9µm Qe= 1.6 Very large for Ganoderma spores.

Nice. I just got ganoderma australe and multipileum.
I definitly need the aurodermas and i need a specimen of tomophagus. Still backed up cataloging some of the mushrooms and well i always post pics on facebook. I need to port some of that here too. I need to make a list of what i need as far as specimen wise.
Is fairly tropical, especially when you get onto the bit between the Atlantic and the Gulf. Most of the Gulf states are at least subtropical in climate I think. Very warm and very humid. Recently Amauroderma a tropical Genus is the Ganodermataceae was reported from Florida for the first time. I had suspected as much as I have seen people posting specimens that looked like Amauroderma from Florida for years but could never get someone to send me one.
Indeed tomophagus i always suspected it was just a tropical polypore. While i know that florida is hot i never suspected to be a tropical climate.
At first I thought the calibration was off when I started measuring due to the large size.
