These are likely not anomalus. Like you say, I think alboviolaceus is a better possibility.
The robust violaceus Corts seem like a really difficult group.
Thicker than 1/4" which is in the proper range for this species. Also note the bulbous to clavate base.
or the photos are anywhere close to describing what I have found. Your best bet is Kuo’s calling C. alboviolaceus a group, as opposed to the European standard.
are a bit thin for alboviolaceus. Here’s another name to check.
Looks like this name applies to a variety of slender silvery-violet corts.
