on what basis have you vote bombed a genus that does not occur in North America?

Unfortunalely I have no notes about the substrate. I guess it was leaf litter or soil. There were no purple hints at all, neither in the stipe nor in the lamellae. The picture was not made with flash, I used the LED light of my camera. The colours make a good match with the real ones. I will also upload another picture, which I could not detect yesterday. The fact that lamellae turned very rusty should limit the naming options.

truly on leaf litter?

any purple present? hard to tell with the flash on at full blast.
