Did you by chance happen to collect this specimen?

Ganoderma curtisii, known from Massachusetts to Nebraska, grows on hardwoods and has a cap that is described as “entirely ochraceous when young, or partly ochraceous and partly dull red in mature plants” (Overholts, p. 213). KUO WEBSITE


Well, if they are synonyms I think G. lucidum is the older name.

I live in the DC area where both occur

How do you separate this from G. lucidum?

I just picked curtisii over lucidum because of location here in the southeast. Some sources say they aren’t separate species at all. Take your pick!
