Acremonium lindtneri?

I also found out online that H.chrysostomus has an anamorph stage called Acremonium lindtneri. Is it what’s showing in the picture of the underside of the Ganoderma?

Thank you, John, for noticing the H.chrysostomus in the picture. While I saw the mycelium in the picture showing the bottom of the conk, I didn’t concentrate on it, being totally unfamiliar with H.chrysostomus. Instead, I was trying to identify the polypore – and it didn’t really fit the profiles of the ones I know, including G.applanatum. Presence of Hypomyces explains everything.

This one is very tough and corky.
