Entoloma sp - dark blue pinkgill

Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

Found at Great Wood, Stanton Fitzwarren, Swindon. Unfortunately the stem was lost. The cap is about 1cm across. Is it possible to identify it more closely from the photographs?

Was it growing on wood? With colours like that the likely candidate is Entoloma euchroum.
