you want to suggest Ischnoderma or Lasiochlena resinosum/resinosa. This could be; but there is also a Ganoderma resinaceum that looks similar or other Ganoderma species that shine like this.

Got my genus wrong

Should have suggested Ischinotus resinosum.

Could it be Resupinatus resinosus?

A very old specimen, without the resin?

G.applanatum does not have a shiny surface, it’s something else.

Atypical for G. applanatum in my area. Looks like older sporocarp that may be degrading.
