I am not into Entoloma. Usually I shun them :=) They are way too difficult for my taste although they are very beautiful.
But we have Hausknecht here in Austria and Noordeloos I know too. I do not know if one of them has come up with a name for this yet. I have no other sources than you, at least here at home.

Mostly NOT American names…

E. eugenei is Noordeloos from the Russian Far East, E. egregium is a Horak name from New Guinea, and E. panniculus is Berk. from Australia! Check that last one if you have access to better resources than I do…

You would have to ask at the Botanical Institute in Vienna, Rennweg 14

for almost all my Australian stuff is still there.
The species you mention are all American, right? Species of Australia are for sure different ones (except a few introduced which this growing in natural temperate rain forest is not) … many are still in need of a name I suppose.
There would be so much work for Oz but there are firstly so few mycologists there and secondly you do not get permission for research easily.

Good lord

Intense beauty. How can I request this specimen for study?
It looks very much like our L. carnea, although this one is more purple, with brighter white gills.

Compare with L. eugenei (macroscopically very similar), L. egregium and maybe especially L. panniculus
