I recently found blue mushrooms growing close to my home which were identified as Lactarius indgo. I broke my example in half and noted a cross section of blue while the gills if you will bleed a milky blue substance. I use a website that has been most helpful with identification called the Mushroom Expert. Kate

I have no knowledge of mushrooms. I found these on my property in the north west corner of Georgia. we live on a ridge where the altitude is 840 ft. They are still growing where I found them. They are on the bank of a dirt road under full shade, it is heavily wooded in this area.
