    This looks like some kind of Ganoderma, but the yellow pore surface looks like none that I'm familiar with. Most have a white to brown pore surface, but I'm not at all familiar with which species grow in France.

    Thank you very much Vitog,
    I forgot to write it on the thread : This one has been seen in Saskatchewan
    Too bad I haven't been taking a picture of the bottom.
    Well I've read that this mushroom had lots of good health properties

    If the colour is true, then it looks like Pycnoporellus fulgens.

    cheers!
