I didn’t scope it. The color combination on this is diagnostic enough IMO.
I do have no additional information I am not into this genus. I do not know about the species in America, I found this here for the third time. But it always has had purplish gills and young is very dark brownish-purple or pinkish-reddish.
Habitat is deciduous forests, rather thermophilous.

were the immature gills? This doesn’t really look like what is called P. bipellis in the states. Although maybe P. barlae is a better name for what is found here? Do you have any microscopic information you can share?

Edit: Actually your larger specimen shows the immature gill color well enough, do you know of any P. bipellis descriptions arguing that it doesn’t have purplish immature gills?
