Cortinarius violaceus


the first 2 photos were taken without flash. The actual colour was probably closer without flash, but it was sunset and there wasn't enough light to get a clear photo.

thanks Argy Bee, that looks like it. How about this one? Same shape, but white! Maybe a young one?
I found it in a different part of the forest.
