Solitary polypore mushroom with an extremely irregular cap discovered growing from soil beneath well-rotted hardwood in a mixed woodland. Would appreciate help with identification.

I don’t think I even noticed the signs of bluing at the time but they are evident in the photos. Beginner’s folly…“I don’t need to write anything down, I’ll be able to rely on my excellent memory…”, next season will be different!
How quickly and intensely did the flesh blue?
Older and contorted fruitbodies of boletes are good at hiding their true identity. Besides, this section of Boletaceae is particularly challenging to identify from morphology. My guess this is a species of Lanmaoa (possibly L. pallidorosea), but Baorangia bicolor is a possibility that shouldn’t be discounted.
