These are the right spores

As others have said, it’s easy to see the oil droplet, you need to look closely to see the outline of the spore. Some stain would have helped.

this is a common problem when photographing (or even looking at) Mycena spores

while the thin outline of the elliptical spores themselves can be seen…barely.

Correct spore pic?

Perhaps these globose spores are meant for another obs? They aren’t “broadly ellipsoid” per Smith 1947 and don’t seem to match the dimensions you’ve given.
