Specimen available

Found under spruce and fir.

Adding some micro-details:

The first micro-shot is of the gill edge at 400x in KOH. The cheilocystidia are broadly lageniform, thin-walled, hyaline, some with solid encrustations on the apex. Also numerous similar pleurocystidia were obs.

The second micro-shot is of the cap surface at 400x in KOH. The cap surface is a hymeniderm of similar globose elements, lightly pigmented.

The third micro-shot is of spores from the gill at 1000x in KOH. The spores are sub-globose to ellipsoid, smooth with no germ pore. The apr. size is 7 × 5 um.

This all points well to Pluteus phlebophorus.
