Purple base of the stem was not too strong

This is not our typical Laccaria bicolor either. The purple base of the stem was quite weakly colored. Laccaria amethysteo-occidentalis and L. laccata grew nearby. On the photo, the whole mushroom came out far too blue.

What passes for L. bicolor in Eastern North America is never this violet except for the mycelium covering the stem base.
