Spores were 7 × 5 microns. Pleurocystidia were lageniform to narrowly lageniform, thin walled and were highly variable in size (35 × 10 to 70 × 25)

check the spores and pileipellis, that should point you in the right direction:

spores > 11 um long and pileipellis with a gelatinous matrix = Volvopluteus

spores < 11 um long and pileipellis without a gelatinous matrix = Volvariella
