Local name: No local name known
Habitat: Growing scattered or gregariously on litters or terrestrial.
Description: Cap: 5-10 cm, convex with an enrolled margin when young, becoming flat as it matures, smooth and blue to greenish coloured which makes it look beautiful. Hymenophore: Slightly decurrent gills, close to crowded, whitish to pinkish and bluish as looked together. Stem: 5-10 cm tall up to 2 cm thick, more or less equal, covered with thin white hairs which disappears with frequent handling and appears brownish with white mycelium at the base. Flesh: Thin and whitish. Spore Print: Pinkish.
Comments: The blue-green to dull greenish colour helps to identify this species immediately in the field. The other anise-scented Clitocybes are never blue-green. C. aeruginosa has a greenish cap, but has white spores and does not smell like anise.
