Oh rad. The blue Lepiotoid things remind me of the two collections of blue "Lepiotas" I will be sequencing soon. Even the supernatant was easter egg blue during the extraction process.
Some of the blue "Lepiotas" actually turn blue as they age, but are not blue when they are immature. I am not sure whether it occurs as a result of tissue damage or not.

Joe Ammerati, the Cortinarius expert told me in email last week that he didn't know of any poisonings from purple Cortinarius mushrooms. There are so many species of purple corts that it is not recommended to eat them. The blue Mycenas are likely to have the mycotoxin muscarine. Hard to say what is in the blue Leptonias, they probably wouldn't taste that good anyway. There is some possibility that the blue cup fungi would be edible, those usually aren't known to be toxic.

Those are some beautiful pics Alan, thx for sharing.
Here is a picture I took last year of my favorite blue mushroom, the Lactarius indigo. This baby makes a mad omelette, turning your eggs blue.

I sent this thread to Tom Volk and asked what that blue rust is in pic # 4 is.

He ID'd it as a Pulcherricium caeruleum!

http://botit.botany....i/july2000.html

He also says that this thread is really cool and the blue mushrooms are the same color as his hair right now.


I would love to cultivate Pulcherricium caeruleum, it would be a lot of fun to have it on logs or in wood chips in the back yard. I wonder what it looks like in grain jars.


Here is another pic of it by Chris Matherly
