West Coast Reishi (Ganoderma oregonense)
Ganoderma oregonense, and other closely-related members of the Ganoderma genus are much-revered for their medicinal properties in the East, where they've been used for millennia by the Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese, etc. as a cure for a plethora of symptoms and diseases. Found in supporting habitats all over the world (excluding Antarctica) this one was found growing in the Mount Rainier Wilderness area, just outside of Mount Rainier National Park near the town of Carbonado in Washington State.
