Blue fungus growing in my front lawn
Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!
Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
No interactions present.
Can you check the ring around the stem. S caerulea it is small and transient in S aeruginosa it is a large and membranous when young. If the whole thing smells of pepper it is S pseudocyanea.
I thought it was S.aeruginosa as it has prominent scales on the stem. Would S.caerulea/pseudocyanea have these too?
It depends on which book you read but S caerulea stipe "erect fibrillose scales" in Fungi of Switzerland. S pseudocyanea stipe "white floccose below the ring" Funga Nordica.
