All the apparent blue on my Pisolithus photos is an accident of lighting and my camera — I keep forgetting to desaturate the blue in photoshop. I’ve never seen any significant blue on the real things.

The reddish-orange on the pseudostipe interior is accurate, though. The rhizomorphs on the exterior are very yellow, slightly lighter the yellow surface showing through the dirt.

Interesting note on the maturation vs section!

Thanks again for all the feedback.

appears to have some blue on it, and some reddish-orange, which matches the rhizomorphs on the exterior. I believe the roots in the photo are more white or whitish. Does that match with what you saw, Jacob?

The powdery brown mass which encompasses the upper 2/3rds of the sporocarp seems a rather early deterioration of the peridioles, comparied to P. tinctorius. The sporocarp exterior seems very young, the interior seems relatively old.

Glad you were able to collect the entire base and show it, Jacob. Good on you!
