But it doesn’t rule out anything.

for that reason it even could be bloxami or the other… it can look different from what you are used to see or not?

Send it to Machiel Noordeloos,

and as soon as you can count to ten you’ll have a newly described species ;)

This is neither bloxamii nor nitidum. Blue ones occur in every part of the world and I really do not think there are identical northern species in subtropical parts of the world. Noordeloos described solely from Europe appr. 200 species up to now and most of them look the same.

size, stature eliminates bloxamii.

these look to be pretty small compared to the duff in the photo, and with quite delicate stipes. also, bloxamii is more likely to have a somewhat peaked or umbonate cap, rather than a dimpled one.

compare to the more ponderous fruit bodies of bloxamii, here:

a E. bloxami? I never saw anyone but it seems like bloxami photos.

Nice photos

Have you compared this collection with Entoloma nitidum?

Beautiful pictures Alan!

Really cool. I’d love to look at part of this collection if you wouldn’t mind sending it.
You can call or email me if you’re interested.

Cool!!
