these are all the same fungi, from one cluster, they are all purple in color, all except the young specimen have somewhat lobed appearance . ,. The gills are identical. There’s a little variation in color due to age, younger more purple with slight umbo, older turning pale. Spore print identical, rusty brown color. There is also a peculiar metallic smell to them. I guess it is best to photograph specimens in situ, can see how it might appear mixed. rgds…….
