Hi all
Sorry not found in the UK - but in the South of France (Provence) during a round of golf. A rather distinctive fungus 4 to 5 inches high. I was looking for a lost ball and thus couldn't study it for any length of time other than taking a quick snap on my phone. it was a foot away from another with same shape and colouring. Cant describe anything about gills/texture/smell but hoping its distinctive enough for someone to be able to point me to the right family.

Hi
Looks like the very young growth of Ganoderma lucidum - compare with https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File ... dum-01.jpg
This is the much-vaunted lingzhi mushroom: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lingzhi_mushroom

cheers
