Please excuse me if this question is very basic, but do all actives bruise blue (or blue-green, etc) when damaged? I know there are a lot of LBM's out there, but some things I've found match pretty closely to the naked eye in the field and I'm wondering if bruising is a definitive requirement. If so, can I expect bruising to be evident within 20 minutes or so? I hate to decimate innocent little LBM patches because my mycological skills aren't so hot.
