At long last, you are a Mushroom Observer! I hope you make a home for your many worldly fungal finds here on the site, as you have with this exceptional specimen. Welcome!

I wonder… the blackening (am I interpreting that correctly?) of the cap and conical shape with little fibrils look like Bertrandia, but that blue color, and the stipe look very much like Entoloma.
