Chlorociboria aeruginascens

Chlorociboria aeruginascens


Tiny blue cups (2mm) along the side of damp eucalyptus stick. The ends of the stick also showed the same colour as a deep permeating stain.


Damp timber in tall moist eucalyptus forest.


C. aeruginosa is another species which forms almost identical fruit bodies but does not stain the wood.

No species ID suggestions

Thanks Antonio. I have since found timber in the forest with the blue stain inside but no fruiting bodies and it has made me realise I was lucky to see these ones. Thins of this size sure makes me want a real camera though.
