I harvested only one of these.

Bluing on rubbed stipe surface was fairly quick, within 60 seconds. Bluing on cut context took a couple minutes to develop.

The bluing on the stipe is sometimes the best way to see the reticulations, at least in young ones.

One blued and one didn’t?

I don’t have much in the way of hemlock around here and have yet to meet this species firsthand. The books say that bluing of both the flesh and the pores is quick and automatic. What were the factors to modify that here? The youth of the specimen? Something environmental? Or do the books overstate the bluing reaction?

The photos leave no doubt about the ID. I’m just sniffing around for added data. [grin]

P.S. No bugs! I hear tell that these are notorious. Congrats on getting a clean pair.
