Does not fit description of L. violaceonigra

Color is quite different from description. Also texture does not seem to be fibrose, or tomentose. It makes me question why this obscure species was picked out of all the Entoloma out there.

I wonder if this was actually meant to be called L. nigroviolacea an obviously similar named species that matches this picture more closely.
