    Beautiful pale purple cap. I suspect it is wood blewit, Clitocybe nuda.

    The gills look too white, and the cap top too blue; but that might just be from the lighting and camera. You should take a spore print (pinkish, not white or brown).

    It still doesn't look like C. nuda that I've seen; see Clitocybe nuda (MushroomExpert.Com). A spore print would be the most useful diagnostic tool because the color can be quite variable.
