I think it may be a feature of the imported eucalyptus Pisolithus. I don’t see it on other Pisolithus.

It’s kind of a messy fungus, that section didn’t reach all the way to the root (which I didn’t have the heart to extract). The slightly bluish highlighting in the black area is just an artifact of the photo, is that what you mean?

is the bottom of the photo the bottom of the sporocarp? I think most Pisolithus degrade/mature from the top to the bottom, but this appears to be the opposite. Also interesting there’s so much blue in the bottom portion.
