Purple mushroom

I've never seen a fungus this colour before - any ideas? About 8cms tall and 2cms across the cap, gills the same colour. There were one or two more just emerging in the area, which is damp leaf mould on sandy soil, at the base of mature oak and sweet chestnut trees.


Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!

Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
