hard to say

It is hard to say with Ganoderma australe and G applanatum as they are so similar.It is sometimes better to go just for Ganaderma I know you can cut through one and tell by the growth as I think it's G.australe that does not have a sterile layer between the pores and G.applanatum does.I think Flaxton posted an example of this last year but not sure how to link to it.

Keep at it

I feel exactly the same but as you say it's a challenge and there is always something new to discover.I have only been learning for a couple of years but they say you are always learning.I was interested in fungi but never knew anything about them and I think I have learnt a lot using iSpot and getting help and advice from the knowledgeable ones.
