Abstract The importance of different physical processes that add new elliptical galaxies to the quiescent population remains poorly constrained. As such, it is critical to investigate samples that are transitioning from the star-forming blue cloud to the red sequence. Using a comprehensive catalog of unusually blue ellipticals with Mstar > 10^10 Msun and 0.01
