possibly the lyophyllum but

possibly the lyophyllum but also possibly lepista nuda. is the colour correct with that purplish hint and slightly purple gills and stem?

Thanks for comments. I've had another look at the specimen and in fact the photograph gives a false impression - the gills and stem are more beige with a greyish tint, and only the very damp edges of the underside of the cap have a very slight purplish tint.
