Observation 4020: Ganoderma applanatum (Pers.) Pat.
When: 2007-08-28
No herbarium specimen

Notes: I found this in a local park, growning in a wooded area near to a railway line. There were a few of them growning on this tree stump, but no other specimens in the area – just this one stump.

If I’d found it here in California, I’d feel pretty sure that’s what it is. If you scratch the white area does it turn brown?
