Unusual local mushrooms

I was out walking The Partners the other day and came across a number of these unusual specimens growing on a lawn under an oak tree here in the neighbourhood. Although they appear to be growing on grass, I believe they must be actually growing from the roots of the oak they are scattered around.

I posted these pics on a mushroom ID forum and it was suggested these are Ganoderma sessile, which are in fact known to grow on the roots of oak trees. Some people consume Ganodermas by drying them and making tea from them and consider them to have very positive medicinal properties.
