Robert, today I created a mission for the color blue. Although new missions are only allowed to have a 300 mile radius the intent is global. Can you join the mission and add your blue spottings? Thanks!!!

I have no idea! I only have read it in the wikipedia, but I prefer not to eat wild mushrooms at all because I'm not fungi expert :)

Great photos. Oh, I see Alex is in demand. Now I feel bad that I just asked for help. He could be out mushroom hunting too instead of helping us here. Thanks always Alex. :)

no problem, btw beautifull specimen/spotting. go on like this , and if you find another fungi, which need identifcation, try to get as much features as possible : cap / gills-pores / stem / all together / cap-surface / back/under- ground...... etc. it will help by the determination.!! cheers

Thank you all for your compliments! Yes! I agree, it does look hand-painted, I thought the same when I saw it! Walking back I noticed some IDIOT had stepped on it, but the underside looked awesome too so I took the second picture! Can anyone help me ID it please? This was not in Chirripo, it was in the mountains of El Empalme, mid-south side of the country. Gorgeous area! I will post a picture of the lagoon!

Ohh I love blue mushrooms! They are so unusual. I almost never use a blue pencil in drawing mushrooms. Good find!
