More diversity in or out of the species description

Wondering if there is a better fit or just more diversity within the species. Recent (2011-06-20 Minnesota) ID attempt led me to Panus rudis (synonym Lentinus) except it is described as growing on dead hardwoods. Mine was on a balsam fir (conifer) log, growing out of worm holes where there were ants. Not as purple as photos on mushroomobser, but otherwise similar.

Just how many purple Lentinus/Panus are there other than P. rudis/L. strigosus and P. conchatus/L. torulosus?
