  1. Agree with young Beefsteak Fungus. The Ganoderma doesn't look like resinaceum to me though (usually shiny similar to G. lucidum). I would suspect G. Australe is more likely.


  2. Thanks James - the rich, dull warm brown upper surface was a thick powdery rust. I'll check the beast out again next time I visit.

  3. No problem. The powdery brown stuff is spores - if you rub some off then I suspect the top will be 'matt' rather than 'gloss'.
