It's amazing how blue is so unappetising. I would lean towards the luteus but it is a tough call isn't it.

The blue stain appeared quickly, easily within a few minutes. That doesn't seem very appetizing.

I think it is edible. In Australia it is probably either S. luteus or S. granulatus

I wonder if this is edible. Hm, yum.

That's an incredible blue colour. Almost like paint. How long before it went black?
