P. salicinus pleurocystidia should have distinct projections but there are other taxa in the group (e.g. Pluteus saupei, Pluteus glaucotinctus) that have cystidia with very indistinct or absent projections.

The overall aspect of this collections points to the salicinus group, but it may not be P. salicinus

the grey colors of the pileus + the discoloration of the stipe point to the salicinus group. Could very well be P. salicinus but there are serveral other species and varieties in this group
