neither of the blue ones look "edible"as such but they might be "wow"

the only uk one of that colour that i know of is rather interesting ,it has had several name changes but perhaps was called hyphaloma cyanesens (spp?)and looks a bit like the "plump one" might do if it grew up to have an upturned rim.the little blue ones have a similar shape to papilonicus (spp?) which are related to a few interesting species .

just cos they grow on trees ,unlike some of the other blue ones, might not rule out interesting alkaloid content.

iirc the blue colour is an oxidation product at least one of the relevant alkaloids.

They are brilliant pictures. We found a blue one in the woods a year or so ago, but think it was more turquoise.

my favorite for "odd fungi"are the luminous slime molds that grow on damp fallen wood and glow like little glowsticks.

The purple one at the top is an amethyst deceiver. The lighting is very good on the pictures!

i thought that but i also remembered that shrooms that are edible in one place can have non edible lookalikes in other places .

this type of confusion has harmed a few chinese shroomers in europe

it does look like an a d

I thought it was that too, but not that good at fungus ID so didn't like to say so.
