The specimen is from the same place, a week later, the purplish tissue looks a mature form.

your latest two images are not of the same material as the first three, though upon second glance, I do see the purplish layer you mention in that first image.

as a rule, things that just look alike don’t belong in the same observation unless they were observed in the same place at the same time and you have good reason to believe that they are the same organism. were these images taken at the same place and time? were the two specimens relatively near to each other?

This fungi develops a velvety purplish growth, looks very similar to Corticium salmonicolor…a common fungi plant pathogenic and saprofite in Cofee and Citrus in Panama

just mycelium
