Observation 94851: Ganoderma curtisii (Berk.) Murrill
When: 2012-05-16
No herbarium specimen

Notes: I stumbled on this mushroom while walking in a woods today. It stands 6 1/2" tall. It’s just stunning. It’s growing on the ground just off a path. The top, underside and stem are all smooth. No signs of gills, nor pores. I’d love to know what it is!

Hi, what types of trees were around? These varnished red polypores are good medicine!
