I found a mushroom that looks a lot like reishi. It is definately a ganoderma, but it cannot be one of the "official" reishi mushrooms, because it does not have a glossy surface.

Ganoderma adspersum (= Ganoderma australe) or Ganoderma applanatum seem likely bets in your corner of the world. A close up picture of the spore bearing surface would be instructive, as would a cross section.

What species of tree was it found on?
Does it have a waxy crust on the top? (Try heating it to see if it melts.)
Have you tried making marks on the spore surface underneath?

It won't be toxic and it might have some of the medicinal properties of reishi.

“There is a way of manipulating matter and energy so as to produce what modern scientists call 'a field of force'. The field acts on the observer and puts him in a privileged position vis-à-vis the universe. From this position he has access to the realities which are ordinarily hidden from us by time and space, matter and energy. This is what we call the Great Work."
― Jacques Bergier, quoting Fulcanelli

It might also be a Fomitopsis sp., perhaps F. pinicola. Also highly medicinal.

Yes, i think it is fomitopsis pinicola. Ganoderma applanatum is very common here, and is usually more brownish.

I found these ones on a dead treetrunk. The tree had been cut, but i'm 99% sure it was a pine.

Thanks for the tips.
