I alway beleived that this is a true Ca aeruginosa, especially after the tons of Aeruginascens i saw. I think I should get A aeruginascens under the electronic scope too, to compare the hyphal system seen in those picture. it would be conclusive enough to my opinion.

is incrusted hyphae (covered with crystals) in aeruginosa, completely smooth in aeruginascens. Spore size can vary a great deal, particularly in aeruginosa.

Colour and shape on these – completely round and hymenium faded to white – are a good match with aeruginosa.

Spore length is:


6 [7.2 ; 8.5] 9.7 µm, Me = 0 × 7.9 µm

Given these measurements, I believe that Chlorociboria aeruginascens is the better choice.
