In australia we have gymnopalus purpleartus or some such thing, ive seen a few. They are said to be active, but only very slightlty and you'd probably have to eat twice your body mass to feel any affects. from what i know i wouldn't bother, but i am on the other side of the world.
why don't you use google before asking such a question? or search the boards here? the related threads thing has plenty of links on them...
people could give you the 'info', but when the info you want is already readily available, that just encourages you to be lazy and ask others to do your research for you when there is no reason for them to do so.
there's one obvious problem, deepest purple, there are other gymnopilus species, and once you found one, you would probably post a terrible picture, with no description, and ask someone, "Is this a good one?" The 'is this a good one' thing really pisses that DH guy off, alot. You should read all you can read about all the mushrooms you can find literature on. Even the non-actives (edible, toxic), because it is interesting information that will help you alot.
