I've never seen purple mold, so I cannot help you. As for the spores, I wonder how they could have fallen on the cap !?!

Yes, spores are purplish-black and can be brushed off, more or less, with your finger.

Normally because there are shrooms bigger than others, so when the bigger ones drop their spores they fall on the caps of smaller shrooms.
