This was also collected last weekend at Pt. Reyes Mycoblitz V on Mt. Vision by Bolek Kuznik; the first time that I had ever seen it in the (blue-green) flesh!

Very different colouration from the collections I’ve seen in Pt. Reyes. These are a deep teal blue, compared to the Pt. Reyes collections which tend to be easter egg, or water colour blue.
