L. amethysteo-occidentalis fades quickly. Fresh material should have the gills inrolled, with a more purple hue. But in full sun (isn’t it nice?) the purple fades quickly to shades of brown, tan and orange. L. bicolor is sometimes found here, but is rather rare. The nearly planar gills show this specimen is at least a week old, probably older, and is likely fading. But without microscopy it remains just a guess.

None of these that I found were purple on the top… Just lilac colored gills, and this almost opalescent brown and orange top.
