I found some mycelium that closely match the description and features of P. caerulipes. Spore-print, gills, stem, cap, size, and habitat all seem to fit alright. The only difference is they do not (or have not yet) blued from being touched. I did notice however, that the patch has aged a bit since yesterday, and now they are looking unhealthy about ready to die. Buut, on some of them, I can see distinct pale-blue/greyish coloring where the caps have aged. I thought I read somewhere that this could be from spores or something. Not quite sure. I have pics but could not get them onto my computer. They popped up RIGHT next to my pot with Salvias planted in it. Kinda neat. Well, any help is appreciated, and the sooner the better because if they are indeed what I believe them to be, then I wanna get to 'em before they're gone. :-(
Can't really say anything for sure.. caerulipes blues quite obviously, so if you were to have really found it, there would be little doubt about the blue coloration. It is also basically a lbm, so there are like 1000's of look-a-likes. If they don't blue when bruised or handled, then they aren't the real deal. Either way, don't consume any. Try to get the pics online or to someone that can help. I have found psathyrella species that had a host blue green mold on them for example which could possibly be mistaken for blue bruising.

Nope, sure isn't mold. I didn't figure these were caerulipes, considering I have found other look-aklikes, but late in the season. These don't blue when handled, at all. Thanks for the help though, it's appreciated.
