Specimen available

Found under spruce and fir.

Adding micro-details:

The first micro-shot is of the gill edge at 400x in Meltzer’s. The cheilocystidia here are clavate, and numerous on a non-fertile edge. Pleurocystidia were uncertain (maybe because they were clavate, hard to tell from basidia).

The second micro-shot is of the cap surface at 400x in Meltzer’s. The surface is a trichoderm, that kinda lays down, of multi-septate elements.

The third micro-shot is of spores from the gill at 1000x in Meltzer’s. The spores are ellipsoid, dextrinoid, smooth with no germ pore, and a super-hilar depression. The apr. size is 15 × 6 um.

Putting this together, with the floccose stipe, it looks like these are Lepiota clypeolaria.
