i dunno if you have ever seen active gyms but the blue green in a similar colour to that having picked a few myself, but never that spiecies mine were luetus and spectabilis

I dont see any blue coloration on the entire mushroom dudenj.

There is a slight greening which Alan pointed out as a sign that it might be Armillaria sp, but ive seen plenty of Galerina etc with green stems as well.

I doubt this is an active Gymnopilus.

I have found many gymnopilus species fruiting in pastures, it look like they are fruiting from the soil but there is always buried wood.

on ground?

Was it surely on the ground or connected with buried wood or woody rests?It looks like a ringless Armillaria.

maybe not

maybe not, it is on the ground under alnus shrub,where are full of sandy stones produced by volcano eruption

this is an alpine species probably associated with Alnus shrub.
