I’m afraid I cannot answer your question about the nature of the pileal cell shown in the last photo without reexamination. I did look specifically at the cap surface, but that photo is the only one I got and there’s nothing else in my notes about it.

Certainly Galerina

This is certainly Galerina is sec. Galerina. But the pileocystidia is the most important for this one, the cystidia there should look just like the cheilocystidia. I wonder if the “cystidium” that you show in the photo for the pileus cysitdia, is a terminal hyphal cell? Did you crush mount the pileus section to look for cystidia there? The G. atkinsoniana that I’ve looked at the cystidia on the pileus, esp. around the disc, are numerous and obvious.
