Who: Otown (otown)

No specimen available

Found on dead wood, probably hard wood but reddish, possibly coniferous, but quite decayed. Found various different small sizes and maturity but all reddish purple, many with whitish bloom on center of cap and some with darker margins. I thought I saw shades of green or blue on some of the stems but could have been anticipating that. Not really cespitose, a couple small groupings but often solitary. Spore prints were dull, definitely not orange; I think they were white/creamish but may have been light brown. I’m frankly confused. Photos don’t match previous citings of luteofolius and spore print suggested it was not. But still not sure what else it could be. Please help with identification
