Medicinal mushroom newly reported from Thailand helps reveal optimum growth conditions

A species of globally recognised medicinal mushroom was recorded for the first time in Thailand. Commonly referred to as lingzhi, the fungus (Ganoderma tropicum) was collected from the base of a living tree in Chiang Rai Province, Northern Thailand. In their study, published in the open-access journal MycoKeys, the scientists also report the first assessment of the optimum conditions needed for the species to grow its mycelia and spread its colony.
