Ganoderma Megaloma Mushroom
Ganoderma megaloma is a species of bracket fungus in the family Ganodermataceae. Described as new to science in 1846 by mycologist Joseph-Henri Léveillé, it is found in the eastern and midwestern United States. It was moved into the genus Ganoderma by Giacomo Bresï¿½dola in 1912. The fungus causes white rot and butt rot on living hardwoods. The holotype was collected in New York.
Distinguishing features for Ganoderma applanatum include its unvarnished, furrowed and lumpy, dull brown cap surface; its white to grayish pore surface, which bruises brown; and its woody, brownish or cinnamon flesh. It is perennial, and individuals can develop for many years by producing a new spore-producing tube layer beneath the previous year's layer (see the sixth illustration).
Ganoderma lobatum is similar, but features a comparatively thin cap with an upper surface that is somewhat softer (it can be punctured with one's thumb); additionally it grows a new cap-like structure beneath the previous year's growth, rather than adding a tube layer beneath the previous year's layer.
Ganoderma brownii is a similar mushroom found on California hardwoods (especially laurel); it has a hoof-shaped fruiting body and larger spores.
"Ganoderma megaloma" is a name sometimes applied to North American collections of Ganoderma applanatum in online resources, but no published, peer-reviewed study supports use of this name in place of Ganoderma applanatum.
Ecology: Saprobic and sometimes parasitic; growing alone or in groups on decaying hardwood logs and stumps, or from the wounds of injured, living (for a while, anyway) trees; producing a white to straw-colored rot of sapwood and heartwood; found on most species of hardwoods; perennial; common and widely distributed in North America. The illustrated and described collections are from Illinois, Indiana, and Colorado.
Cap: 10ï¿½30 cm across; 8ï¿½14 cm deep; more or less semicircular in outline, or irregular; surface with a dull, unvarnished outer crust, often furrowed in "zones," brownish to grayish brown; bald.
Pore Surface: White to grayish or pale brownish; bruising yellow to brownish, then dark brown; becoming dirty brown in age; with 4ï¿½6 tiny, circular pores per mm; tubes in annual layers, separated by brown tissue, each layer 0.5ï¿½2 cm deep, with older layers often stuffed with white mycelial material.
Stem: Usually absent; if present, lateral and very stubby.
Flesh: Thin; brown to cinnamon brown (rarely
Odor and Taste: Not distinctive.
Chemical Reactions: KOH instantly black on cap surface, flesh, and tubes.
Spore Print: Brown to orangish brown.
