Latt, here are some pictures of those mushrooms that I think are Reishi. Yes, as you can see they do appear shiny on top. The last picture is not very good, but I was trying to show the undersides and that they are spongy on the bottom with no gills. The whole mushrooms are kinda hard. I don't think that this is the right time of year, because most of the ones on the tree look very beat-up from the winter. Many were on the ground and had fallen from the tree. I suspect that they probably grow new ones each year, because I recall that they looked more healthy during the summer months. I'm having some trouble viewing your email address, and so you may have to ask the forum director guy to email it to me.
