Thanks MSchink for linking that article. I was hoping to see something like that come out at some point making straight all the various ganoderma varieties. Do you know the group of authors? Seemed like a diverse group and wondering how they all came together to publish the paper. Do you agree on the classifications? I hope to eventually see a follow up on that looking at the medicinal compound proportional differences of the 13 species (polysaccharides, organic germanium, proteins, sterol, etc)

Seems to be an Eastern species growing on eastern Hemlock and rarely even a few hardwoods. G.oregonense is similar but seems restricted to the west on a variety of conifers including western hemlock. One of the oregonense sequences used in this study came from western hemlock. http://www.researchgate.net/...

The two are probably best distinguished by their spore size with G.oregonense having larger spores than G.tsugae. I have not yet seen any specimens from the west with smaller spores that could be called tsugae, except a single interesting specimen from AZ.

Possibly Tsugae?

I believe this was growing on a Hemlock. Am I correct in saying that oregonense are duller in color and Tsugae have more colors, especially yellow?
