Recognized by sight: the blue apices and purple staining should help narrow it down. a look at the spores and a ferric sulfate test will help even more!

upon a second glance, it seems that the apparent blue hue to the apices may be a photographic artifact of excess saturation or other post-production changes. can you attest to the presence of this color in fresh material?
