Ganoderma adspersum (Schulz.) Donk. Kustiger Lackporling. Bracket 7–60cm across, 5–25cm wide, 3–30cm thick, upper surface with a thick dark brown hard knobbly crust which is concentrically ridged, margin thick and obtuse, white in the growing season. Flesh dark brown, thicker than the tube-layer. Tubes stratified, reddish-brown. Pores 3–4 per mm, circular, white to pale yellow-ochre, discolouring when handled. Spores brown, ovate, truncate at one end, 8–13 x 5.5–9um, mostly about 10 x 6.5um. Hyphal structure trimitic; generative hyphae with clamp-connections but these often difficult to demonstrate. Habitat parasitic on deciduous trees, usually found on the lower part of the trunks; the cocoa-like spore deposit is often very dense on top of the cap and on the wood above it.
