the oldest fruit-body of a larger collection.

I agree that it doesn’t fit most people’s concept of X. rainisii, with most pictures being of young fruit-bodies… I have a observation of a few older specimens that I will have to post soon.

This is an interesting fruitbody

That I agree is X. rainisii, but I wouldn’t have known
from the photo alone. I did see the rest of the collection and the staining of the young fruitbodies from
this collection was intensely dark blue-green and concentrated at the stipe base when cross-sectioned.

This probably represents somewhere near the extreme end of the spectrum
both for extent of cap cracking and pale coloration for this species.
