Ha alright much appreciated RJK. That would be interesting if they were active. From what I have read none of the “BLGs” are active on the west coast. I will send you an email.

the virgate pileus, revolute margin, white context, adnate to slightly decurrent gill attachment, wavy gills toward the stipe, fibrillose stipe and the arachnoid/fugacious partial veil all point to G. magnus.
also, these definitely appear to have some blue/green coloration to them.

i won’t speak on a bioassay…
but, if you can dry 1 and send it to me for study i would very much appreciate it.

also, bloodworm died. he got hit by a bus. ;)

Added the print just in case it was useful. Why did you change from ventricosus to magnus? If you could explain briefly that would be great bloodworm. Just trying to work on my gym IDs a bit. Do you think it is worth a bioassay? Thanks.
