Recognized by sight: Stipe seems too gracile and smooth, in L. amethysteo-occidentalis it’s usually thicker and more often stoutly cylindrical, as well as shaggier. That species also has a distinctly scurfy cap in (which is especially visible after it’s faded), and has gills that remain more purple than these, usually into age.

Laccaria was a last ditch, three months later naming. we can check the spores as soon as we process all the new stuff. sigh.

Darv’s suggestion is better – I was having trouble seeing this as a Laccaria… drop some KOH on the cap if it’s still fresh enough.

Otherwise a quick spore slide will either show inamylod, spiny spores (Laccaria)
or amyloid, smooth spores (Neohygrophorus)
