Observation 87928: Ganoderma P. Karst.

When: 2012-02-03

Collection location: North Port, Florida, USA [Click for map]

Who: ndoll

Specimen available

Ganoderma sp. cf. zonatum Murrill

Specimen has blackish colored cap surface; and thin, orange-buff colored band along margin of pore surface. The collector had never observed Ganoderma zonatum with black-colored laccate pileal surface. My opinion is, this collection does not exactly match G. zonatum but is related to it. Should be compared to G. orbiforme (=G. boninense), and G. miniatocinctum.
