To make matters worse specimens obtained from the field collection are often without their cap and/or stipe intact and left with only the sclerotia (the medicinally useful part) thus making it impossible to make identification based on the pore and basidiospore sizes.
Our results show that basidiospore infection dominates also in these species, and only a small proportion of thalli colonized a substrate volume comprising more than 2 sample points (Table 4).
Tables 5 and 6 show that there were significant variations of basidiospore length diameter and spore shape index (SSI)within and between species of Ganoderma in Betong and Miri.
