I'm attempting to identify a gorgeous set of mushrooms. I'm not anything resembling a mycologist, and I have no intention on consuming these... But for my own curiosity, I'm trying to identify these striking mushrooms.
- These mushrooms were found directly under a red oak tree, in central New Hampshire, near Lake Winnipesaukee
- The mushrooms were found this morning, on August 2nd
- The largest cap was about 6 inches in diameter
- The pore surface bruised rapidly (10s of seconds) to a blackish blue, even when lightly bruised. Harder pressure bruised nearly instantly.
- The cap flesh, though, did not. You can see a slightly more-yellow streak where I rubbed the cap pretty hard. Even after several minutes, no bruising appeared.
- The stipe similarly did not bruise. In fact, it was quite solid.
- When cut in half, no bruising was apparent, even after several minutes (when the picture was taken)
Digging around, I thought maybe it was B. Bicolor, but the cracked appearance of the cap doesn't match basically any photos I can find. It's not as bruisable as B. sensibilus.
Can anyone help me identify this? I can run further tests as well.
