Ganoderma sessile

Synonyms: Fomes sessilis, Polyporus sessilis.

Extract from Wikipedia article: Ganoderma sessile is a species of polypore fungus in the Ganodermataceae family. This wood decay fungus is found very commonly in Eastern North America, and is associated with declining or dead hardwoods. There has been a lot of taxonomic confusion with this fungus since its circumscription in 1902.
