About 5 cm. Pileus stained green. Substrate unknown but probably an oak log.

How big was it? What was the substrate? Did any get collected?

It doesn’t look as aerolate as I would expect for aeruginosus. Also, the gestalt seems closer to braendlei, but the deep blue color at the disc, the darker fibrils scattered around the pileus and the persistence of the cortina all seem consistent with your proposal.
