with Danny. I haven’t detected any blue/tropical correlation, and I think the actual situation might be the reverse.

seems rather split to me.

The ‘Blue’ species list actually shows most entries as being from the US, though that’s almost certainly a sample bias. still, what with all the blue Entoloma/Leptonia, Albatrellus fletti and Neoalbatrellus caeruleoporus, Arrhenia chlorocyanea, the various blue Hydnellum spp. and Phelodon atratus, Lactarius indigo, multiple blue crusts, not to mention everything that stains blue, we end up with a lot of temperate blue fungi.

what is with these cool blue fungi in the tropics?

why does that side of the world appear to have more species in shades of blue?

what could be the adaptive advantage?

nice capture.
