The blue bruising reaction of the pores is at this link:
The blue staining of the cut flesh can be seen here:
No visible spore print; specimen probably too old. [CORRECTION: Spore print faintly yellow overnight.]
Spore microscopy will be performed later and this observation will be updated.
Pores and all parts of the flesh stain blue with bruising/cutting in 15-30 seconds.
A portion of the dried specimen will be sent to David Arora for sequencing, and the remainder will be put in the Gilbertson Herbarium at the University of Arizona.
At the time of creation, this was the most westerly and southerly observation in North America on Mushroom Observer, and according to Arora, it may be the first collection west of the Mississippi River.
