Recognized by sight: Bears significant resemblance to specimens identified as G.curtisii that grow on both spruce and maple in Massachusetts. Would be interesting to see the internal flesh.

This is two specimens with seperate stalks, and enfused (or conjoining) together the caps. The undersurface of this one is with green mold…

Ganoderma tsugae and lucidum can both grow from Pine trees. Generally, the Lucidum-group associates with hardwood, and Tsugae with conifer. For a clear identification, provide an accurate measurement for density of pores; also include photos of the structure and colors of the interior context.
