Found this several times since. Patrick thinks it’s trogii, which is still fairly southern in distribution. I wasn’t able to get any useful microscopy from this collection, the blue coloration is probably the result of some sort of parasite. Every mount I made looked like soda pop, there was so much bacteria present. I’ve got to sort these out when time permits.
