Going to scope these and post findings. They turned blue so fast, super amazing! They were everywhere up there, thought they were just a pluteus….but the gills…lol… posted new pic today, 24 hours later, bluing continues as it is drying, which was suprising.

Really amazing color!

A thought too but couldn’t find where they blued so quickly with touching them. Anyways, sending to someone for scoping.

Not Pluteus.
Agreed ghosty.

But I have no idea what they are. That blue bruising is crazy but doesn’t strike me as psilocybin bruising either. I’d be interested in seeing what others think of these
