Can anyone supply a key which includes the genus Simocybe?

In this observation the form of the spores is that of Simocybe centunculus, but the form of either cheilocistidia or caulocystidia didn’t match with that species. The microscopy of S. centunculus can be found at

Another species S. haustellaris can also be see at that website
http://www.funghiitaliani.it/index.php?showtopic=57983
also having distinct features.
I don’t know what other species belong to that genus and if anyone has the features of my specimen.

I’m not rightly sure,

but there are cystidia everywhere (and similarly styled ones at that), which should narrow it down somewhat.

Microspopy added: what the hell is this?

When I saw the spores I thought this could be a Simocybe, but the posterior observation of the pileipellis and of the stiptipellis raised some doubts. What can this be?
