Green Elfcup

Chlorociboria aeruginascens


I often find bluish stained wood caused by Chlorociboria species, but I rarely ever see any fruiting bodies. This was only my second time coming across it despite seeing the blue stained wood all the time in both Maine and Alaska.


Large decaying log on the ground of a forest floor.


Mostly basing ID on the laterally attached stipe versus the centrally attached stipe of Chlorociboria aeruginosa.
