Observation 66661: Gyroporus cyanescens (Bull.) Quél.

One group only, found consisting of three fungi. These were growing on the subtrate (forest floor) and not in close proximity to the Stands of timber in the area.
I believe these to also be Boletes…. Hight about 8cm and width about 5cm. There was no bulbous base and no aroma.

Thanks Roy for the comments. All taken in. I should have cut this fellow also, but had a small group with me waiting to photograph. Then it POURED harder. Most of the time here we are walking around in a couple of inches of water that now takes forever to soak in. (have a black specimen {with gills blackalso}, still to load.It is also unusual and interesting).

cyanescens in the broad sense, Ian. Macroscopically it fits, but there is some discussion along biogeographic lines about whether or not a global distribution is even possible. I could write stacks on this, but won’t do that here.
Please be aware that there are 2 entities in Australia of the G. cyanescens group – one stains blue lightly, the other stains deep, dark intense blue. Ihave a graduate student, Naveed Davoodian, working with me at the moment who is tackling Gyroporus
