We’re going to need to at least see the cheilocystidia and pleurocystidia (or the absence of) before we can even begin to give educated guesses. For an uneducated guess, does kind of look like P. candolleana from the top…
Also, I can’t make out the spore detail too clearly, are they elliptical/bean shaped and truncate at the apex? Did you measure them? Maybe you could try focusing the microscope by looking through the camera screen rather then the eyepiece if you aren’t already, it helps to zoom in temporarily while focusing.
