Bright purple fungus
No identification made yet.
No interactions present.
With just the one photo and no other details it is difficult to split between Laccaria amethystina and one of the purple Cortinarius.
Sorry - I took this picture a while back and only came across this site recently :( I shared it with my friends but no one could identify it. It was on its own and about 6 inches tall.
For future reference, what other details should I be aware of when next posting?
Just googled your two suggestions and from memory I don't think it's the first one (Laccaria amethystina) but it could be a 'aged and nibbled' version of the second (purple Cortinarius)
definitely worth going and looking at that place again next year as those purple cortinarius are very nice and some are quite rare.
Great idea! I'll deffo do that and hopefully will get a definitive answer as to what they are :)
