This would be the northern-most collection of this species if you are correct. I have been studying the C. violaceus group and C. austroviolaceus. The few pictures I have resemble this collection more than your collection: http://mushroomobserver.org/67012?q=22tJT. Also, C. austroviolaceus occurs with Eucalyptus, not Nothofagus. If this is C. austroviolaceus, it would be found with a novel host.
