ID Request - Blue Mushroom
    #11288214 - 10/20/09 11:48 PM (7 years, 11 months ago)

Sorry, folks, I know this isn't the best ID request...  I really didn't think that I'd be asking for an ID at the time, but as I was going through some of my pictures from today's outing I decided I am curious enough to ask...







Habitat:
I was checking one of my older Cyan patches and found now caramel caps there.  Instead, a bunch of these guys were growing in their place.  So...  Habitat = WOOD MULCH.  Near Pines and Alders in the PNW.

Gills:
Blue and attached

Stem:
Stems were about 2 inches tall on average.  I'd say about 1/4 inch thick and pretty hardy/meaty/dense.  As for stem color...  They were a slightly lighter blue than the rest of the specimen.

Cap:
Caps were a good 2-3 inches wide, blue and very heavy (dense/meaty/hardy).  Not slimy at all.

Spore print color:
I ended up leaving these in the field because I wasn't planning on asking for an ID, so no spore print on these guys.  Just hoping someone might be able to tell me what the heck they are.

Bruising:
No noticeable bruising (yes, I beat one up a little and waited to see).

Other information:
I took a whiff to see if there was a noticeable smell to them and they didn't really have one.  If anything they smelled 'woodsy' like their environment.


Cheers!

Wait for TI, but look up lactarius indigo.

Lactarius indigo does not grow in the PNW. 

Looks a lot like Clitocybe odora.

Thanks for correcting me.

Since Clitocybe odora smells markedly like anise, could it be Stropharia pseudocyanea?

Clitocybe odora var. pacifica maybe.

Its not a Stropharia.  Smell it again.
