Did you get a chance to scope the spores? I have found what I am thinking currently to be in the Laccaria based mostly on spore micromorphology. Do you have a good source for keys for this genus?

This mushroom is about an inch tall, growing from leaf litter near a dry stream bed, Under mixed hardwoods in an old strip mine.

Thank you Else!

I suspected this little purple guy was not a Laccaria.

looks much more like a Pseudobaeospora

the summary says it all – this looks on the photo a small mushroom, which would fit Pseudobaeospora perfectly well.
Laccarias do not have such cystidia on the stipe apex, nor so many hyphal strands sticking out from the stipe.
