Great holiday, so many beautiful spots. Unfortunately I was wearing out the patience of my travel companions when I was stopping every 5 metres or so for another Project Noah shot. :-)
Wow thanks Charlie.. (lol). DeeSA this pic is good. With so many fungi the other side and stem (if any) is also really handy for an ID. I like the location - good holiday?
Sorry, might have helped if I had a better photo. :-)
G. Applanatum - Distinguishing features for Ganoderma applanatum include its unvarnished, furrowed and lumpy, brown-crusted cap surface; its white pore surface, which bruises brown; and its brownish or cinnamon flesh. It is perennial, and the specimens can develop for dozens of years....so many similar attributes as the australe ..except it does say the australe is flattish in maturity ...maybe a difference compared to lumpy top.
..yep or G applanatum maybe? (note to self: work out the difference between australe and applanatum)
My first thought too Mark ..Ganoderma australe ..not that mature yet ..very hard to know without an underside shot to do a 100% ID ...and if there is any brownish bruising or if it would bruise..common name "artists conk"
