To be pfeifferi it should be

To be pfeifferi it should be covered in a yellow layer of wax with a sweetish smell especially on the pores but as there is no sign of that I think it is unlikely.

As with your other G austale

As with your other G austale is the most likely. To distinguish between G austale and G applanatum you must measure the spores or cut the fruit-body to show the internal structure. Each years tubes of G applanatum are separated by a sterile layer whereas in G austale they grow directly on last years tubes. If you look at Fenwickfield's latest Ganoderma post you will see what I mean.
