Observation 136023: Hygrophorus caeruleus O.K. Miller

When: 2013-06-08

Collection location: Eldorado National Forest, California, USA [Click for map]


Who: Mike McCurdy (lesmcurdy)

Specimen available

This mushroom was found in a mixed fir/pine forest at approximately 6800 ft. by Amy BeberVanzo. It was in very fresh condition, and the blue tones were much brighter at the time of collection, than at the time the photo was taken 24 hours later. The odor was as noxious as you would expect, though my 12 year old son kind of liked it??
