that stipitate Ganoderma and Amauroderma can be told apart by the latter being exclusively and truly centrally stipitate, whereas Ganoderma will attach laterally or to the top of the center of the pileus.

the stem looks varnished. perhaps it’s ganodermoid after all.

substrate? woody or leathery? the jet black stipe and general stature to me indicate one of the black-footed polypores more than any Ganoderma relative.

is the genus name you’re looking for, but I do not know if this is that.
