Recognized by sight: This one is with the Ganoderma tsugae group. The G. tsugae found in New England states is notably different then G. tsugae in southeastern states. For this reason, during 1988 a new southern species was described, Ganoderma meredithae. It was named for Meredith Blackwell, a student of Louisiana State University, now a professor. Some published scientific articles continued to recognize G. meredithae as a current species, and others did not.  I am unsure of its current status… I believe this observation is a choice looking specimen of Ganoderma tsugae.
Used references: J.E. Adaskaveg, and R.L. Gilbertson.  Mycotaxon.  "Ganoderma Meredithae, A New Species On Pines In The Southeastern United States".  1988.
