This is the same example as previously recorded several times, now showing more mature light brown fruiting bodies. Some still have the blue tint (4th photo) and the most mature look as in the 5th photo.

To see all the stages recorded for this example, click on 'observations' then enter 'Badhamia utricularis' in the search box near the top of the page that comes up and press 'enter'.
