Thanks for chiming in

I was using information from “A Revision of the North American Species of Chlorociboria” C. S. Ramamurthi, Richard P. Korf and Lekh R. Batra
Mycologia, Vol49, No 6 page 856-857 1957

Are you using a updated source? Or is your observation based on personal experience?

Whats your opinion on this observation? http://mushroomobserver.org/71191?q=7vIp

but not the species. They are different in both shape and colour. C. aeruginosa is more bluish, with a rounded shape and a central stipe, and the hymenium soon fades to white. In my opinion, this is aeruginascens.

Fair enough

I didn’t completely rule out your conclusion – i voted “could be” – it could be aeruginosa or aeruginascens. In my opinion and the opinion of the resources i looked at shape is not a distinguishing factor – from what i read spore size alone is the only reliable feature to distinguish between the two.

However the shape is distinctly different in my opinion. If you conclude aeruginascens, you should suggest it rather than completely rule out my conclusion. I’m thinking that’s why there are degrees of agreement on your vote…

microscopy to determine if its Chlorociboria aeruginascens or Chlorociboria aeruginosa
