Since you are doing microscopy, can you please get us some pictures of the caulocystidia and cheilocystidia?? They’re some of the first things to look for in Conocybe. :)

Other features that might help are measurements of the capitulum (Little apical ball on the cheilocystidia) and checking if the gills react with ammonia.
