Adding some micro-details:

The first micro-shot is of the gill edge at 400x in KOH. The chielocystidia are broadly clavate to lageniform, and thin walled. Pleurocystidia are numerous and similar.

The second micro-shot is of the cap surface at 400x in KOH. The surface is hymeniform, with globose to lageniform elements, and deeply pigmented.

The third micro-shot is of spores from the gill at 1000x in KOH. The spores are subglobose, smooth, no germ pore, and apr. 7 × 6 um in size.

It seems that this comes together rather well as Pluteus nanus.
