Observation 11252: Phylloporus bellus var. cyanescens Corner
When: 2008-09-17
Collection location: Japan [Click for map]
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Found these on a hill side sticking out from fallen tree limbs and sticks.
Could not tell if they were growing from wood or the soil.
There were a few maggots inside the gills, so I washed them before I came home. The gills are yellowish-orange, but bruised bluish-green very readily.

My fingers were very dark orange, and my pants have orange stains where I wiped my hands accidentally.

The smell is very distinctly citrus, or sweet smelling. Anyway, they have a very pleasant smell, somewhere between sweet and citrus. When I washed them the water running off of them was bluish-green.
