No specimen available

I’m working on ID for this small-medium Russula which was found September 19th, 2008 at Mingo Wildlife Area in Southeastern Missouri in a rocky, hilly Ozark mixed hardwood area. The gills and stem are white, the cap is a powdery light blue-grey color with some violet tinges and light-colored center. I’ve considered gracilis, subgraminicolor, azurea, grisea, fragilis, variata, but none of the references or online sources have a description or image that matches very well.

Whadya think it is ???

Some observers have suggested cyanoxantha and parazurea. Here’s a citation:


I’m now leaning to the parazurea
