These little fellas was just about over one inch and a half high.
And check out those beautiful water drops clinging to the silky fiber hair-like strands
of the vanishing veil on the stalk shooting upwards and outwards to connect to the outer edges of the base of the chapeau.
You can also see the striate margin along the edge of the caps with the gill lines showing through the chapeau.
And to top it off if you carefully scan your eyeballs over the top shroom on its right side and you can see the viscid pellicle, that yellow-orangish looking gel which apparently is part of the living shroom.
I kinda like that look so I am officially naming it:
"The Living Shroom."
Yeah, I know there are two shrooms in the image there but that name is now copyrighted by me on this third day, in the month of December, in the year of our Lord, 2000 and 3.

Wavy caps, perhaps?
If it's not broken, then the government will try to fix it until it is.

the caps of P. cyanescens are wavy as in this photo here below.
The P. azurescens caps are cpompletely different from off-conical to flat with an edge hanging down and a large umbo in the center of the cap and the gills are thin and maybe less than a 16th to a 32nd of an inch thick. And the cyanescens gills are thick as seen in the above photo.
The Umbo is also a protrude. It is one of the main characteristic features of the cap.
It is a unifromed mushroom. rarely a cap can become wavy but not much.
The azure gills are lighter in color than those of the cyanescnes.
The stalks usually stand straight upwards but so do the strems of the cyans. the azure stems are always straight while the cyanescens stems gets tropism and curves out and upwards so the stem can face the light.
