some notes from the descriptions available at MykoBank.

E. serrulatum:
Pileus 6-35 mm, hemispherical then conico-convex, expanding to plano-convex, finally applanate with undulating marginal zone, with margin slightly to distinctly involute when young, not hygrophanous, not translucently striate, dark blackish blue, bluish grey or violaceous blue, uniformly coloured, while expanding with age turning violaceous brown as the context becomes visible between the dark blue fibrils.
Lamellae, L = 20-40, I = (1-)3-7, moderately crowded, adnate or emarginate, rarely subdecurrent, arcuate, then segmentiform, rarely ventricose, sometimes transvenose, pale to fairly dark blue when young, especially near margin of pileus, then greyish pink with strongly contrasting blackish blue crenulate to denticulate edge.

E. nigroviolaceum:
Pileus 10-35 mm, hemispherical to convex, irregularly convex, flat at centre, margin involute and often undulate, not translucently striate, not hygrophanous, initially dark violaceous-black, then vinaceous-grey, at first, innately fibrillose-tomentose to rugulose at centre, then entirely tomentose, radially fibrillose to squamulose at centre.
Lamellae moderately distant, adnate, whitish to grey-bluish (lead-grey), then pinkish with concolorous edge.
