Observation 33562: Terana caerulea (Schrad. ex Lam.) Kuntze

When: 2009-10-18

Collection location: Rock Bridge State Park, Columbia, Missouri, USA [Click for map]

Who: MOFunGuy (jrapp)

No specimen available

O.K. I’ve reached the last of my mushroom pix of 2009 and have a few oddballs that I just can’t ID. So I thought I’d post these up and see if any M.O. folks might steer me in some direction. These are all found in mixed hardwoods here in Central Missouri. Here’s the first: all shades of blue.

Any guesses ???

If i had to make a guess on something else I would consider byssocorticium atrovirens. However it also resembles older faded Pulcherricium caeruleum.

Thanks for giving this a look. We definitely have Pulcherricium caeruleum (or Terana caerulea) around here, however every one of those I’ve found is dark royal blue with a narrow light-colored margin. This thing has quite a few shades of blue, and no narrow margin. I haven’t seen one like this, but you think they can look like this?

If this the correct identification I have never seen it in Canada. I think it is most common in the southern USA.

did this specie is known from canada??
