The spore size seems too large for applanatum, so I wondered what the alternative could be. In your area, Ganoderma australe is said to be common and the one that can be mixed up with applanatum at a young stage (and the spores are a match), but I’m not familiar with it.
The place where the observation took place is very rich in trees and there exist pine , quercus, beech and some others as well as some large shrubs, like Arbutus unedo. I must confess that I don’t remember exactly what was the species of tree where the specimen developed. But looking at the photos I think that I am able to recognize the bark of Quercus suber, our most common Quercus tree.
what tree it’s growing on?
with new photos, chemical reaction and spores measures.
… a sample of the material. In a forthcoming oportunity I will try to collect some spores and observe them under a microscope.
You have something else. Check the microscopy and dna.
it’s extremely variable..
the material that we have in California.
