In luteoviridis is described as “dull yellow” with “pale fulvous” scales that darken at the disc when mature. The immature pilei pictured in this observation are covered in purple fibrils. Additionally, Hesler makes no mention of luteoviridis being hygrophanous or striatulate at the margin as can be seen in this collection.
There are some similarities, primarily in the gestalt of the stipe and the recurved-tufted fibrils at the disc, as well as the position and make up of the partial veil remnants on the stipe and pileus margin. However, Your collection seems consistently pink- purple before maturity, I think this excludes luteoviridis, which is reportedly yellow throughout its development.

but had two trusted identifies cast their doubt on the Shroomery. They will be sent to a couple MO users for microscopy.
