"Ganoderma" is a genus of polypores which grow on wood. They can be differentiated from other polypores because they have a double walled basidiospore.

The genus is divided into two sections - Section Ganoderma has a shiny cap surface (like "Ganoderma lucidum") and Elfvingia has a dull cap surface, like "Ganoderma applanatum".

The name "Ganoderma" is derived from the Greek "ganos"/γανος "brightness, sheen", hence "shining" and "derma"/δερμα "skin",cite book | author = Liddell, Henry George and Robert Scott | year = 1980 | title = A Greek-English Lexicon (Abridged Edition) | publisher = Oxford University Press | location = United Kingdom | id = ISBN 0-19-910207-4]
