Observation 66661: Gyroporus cyanescens (Bull.) Quél.
When: 2011-04-30
No herbarium specimen

Notes: One group only, found consisting of three fungi. These were growing on the subtrate (forest floor) and not in close proximity to the Stands of timber in the area.
I believe these to also be Boletes…. Hight about 8cm and width about 5cm. There was no bulbous base and no aroma.

Thanks Roy for the comments. All taken in. I should have cut this fellow also, but had a small group with me waiting to photograph. Then it POURED harder. Most of the time here we are walking around in a couple of inches of water that now takes forever to soak in. (have a black specimen {with gills blackalso}, still to load.It is also unusual and interesting).

cyanescens in the broad sense, Ian. Macroscopically it fits, but there is some discussion along biogeographic lines about whether or not a global distribution is even possible. I could write stacks on this, but won’t do that here.
Please be aware that there are 2 entities in Australia of the G. cyanescens group – one stains blue lightly, the other stains deep, dark intense blue. Ihave a graduate student, Naveed Davoodian, working with me at the moment who is tackling Gyroporus
