Greenish-blue mushroom in Sept. 22 post identified

Just in case you’re not following the replies (you have o click on the reply link at the end of posts), Anna Garenday has posted the following, with interesting information about the greenish-blue mushroom in the picture:

“The greenish blue mushroom is Chlorociboria aeruginacens, the green staining fungus of wood that used to be utilized by artisans of the 17th and 18th century in their intarsia designs. See Tom Volk’s account of this fungus; Tom also includes images of intarsia designs. His site: http://botit.botany.wisc.edu/toms_fungi/jul2008.html. Anna”
