Observation 26829: Ganoderma oregonense Murrill
When: 2009-10-12
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This one was originally covered with dust/pollen such that it didn’t look like a Ganoderma. After wiping off the cap and looking at the few spores I could find from the tubes, it was clearly a Ganoderma.
While it was growing in a primarily Sitka spuce area, the bark of the tree it was growing on appeared to be a fir or perhaps a Hemlock. However, G. oregonense seemed more likely judging from the descriptions in Millers’ book comparing it to G. tsugae. The pores were about 3/mm whereas G. tsugae are 5-6/mm.
The spores were ovoid and truncated on one end as well as being thick walled.
