Thank you all for all your annotations. I had some notes and more pics on this one but I am far from my office, so I better use Fungi sp in the meanwhile until I get more accurate information.

this has more of the gestalt and habit…

of a Gerronema to me. Growth on wood, decurrent gills, central depression to the cap, can be brightly colored (although blue is new to me) all fit the genus Gerronema.

but I thought perhaps the observer saw pink spores in the field? otherwise, am wondering why Entolomatacea was the choice here.

specimen means you can’t check the spores to see if it’s Entolomataceae. Completely wrong shape and substrate for virescens/hochstetteri. You might ask Tim Baroni, he “listens” to MO, and knows the neotropical Entolomataceae better than anyone I know.

do you know Entoloma hochstetteri and virescens? Look them up in my obs. if you don’t. They have a striking similarity to these critters from America here. I think they are true Entoloma.

pink spores?
