Cortinarius alboviolaceus, a common core in our region and Lepista nuda (Clitocybe nuda): Cortinarius alboviolaceus has a dry cap, bulbous base, rusty brown spore print, but you won’t see this till mushroom matures sufficiently. In early stages, might see a cortina or evidence of one on stipe. Also resembles Laccaria purpurea, which has a white spore print. Not recommended.
