Earliella scabrosa

Found this a few times in the Amazon, where its qualifying features were its primarily resupinate growth pattern underneath a downed log, transitioning to fan-like shelves, with impressive tensile strength in all parts. The hymenium was a striking white with rather ordinarily oriented pores (ie: not radially elongated, labyrinthian, etc.).

EDIT: Upon further review, this picture isn’t really enough to go on for making so specific a determination. I’m beginning to see a few things which remove E. scabrosa from the running upon a second glance, including much more white at the margin and a lack of the deep purple and “wrinkles” characteristic to this species. The flesh ought to have been thin, fibrous, rubbery and tough as well. I’ll go with Ischnoderma resinosum for now, as it looks to be a pretty convincing macro match.

I knew mine was a poor guess (Ganoderma), Tom. I just wanted other members to propose a better name. Have you got any suggestions?

I have never seen a Ganoderma with such a wide white margin and so thin. But then again I have never been to Turkey.
