I agree this was Ganoderma lucidum, because they grew stipitate and sessile, from the base down to the roots of the tree.

Had it been G. resinaceum, they would be sessile-only, with more conspicuous colors, growing from the base and up the stalk of the tree.

it’s a huge tree and small mushroom (about three inches across) and thanks to a telephoto lens… For some reason they object to you climbing over the fence to pick mushrooms.

what, no WHITE shrooms??!

so you DO have a sense of humor Noah! Just thought that the time you told me to sniff a mushroom so i could inhale as you guessed maybe 100 springtails, it was a new age health remedy.

hmmm
