For ID I used Vesterholt, J. (2005). The genus Hebeloma monograph. The key is based on the presence/absence of cortina & on the dextrinoid reaction of spores with Melzer, with the scale from D0 to D4 (our collection was D2 to D3) and also on the shape of cheilocystidia.
I have a problem with judging the odor. In the description the “radish-like” smell is listed for majority of Hebeloma except the Hebeloma sacchariolens group. However in this particular collection, I noticed some sweetish undertone.

Any odors, and what trees was this with? I see the veil there, and yeah not H. mesophaeum with the dextrinoid spores. What are the details on how you go to this id?
