Adding some micro-details:

The first micro-shot is of the gill edge at 400x in KOH. The cheilocystidia are cylindrical with sub-capitate ends.

The second micro-shot is of spores on the gill at 1000x in KOH. The spores are dark-grey, ellipsoid, warted, with a germ pore.

This is pretty clearly Lacrymaria lacrymabunda.
