Spore measurements?!

Spores measurements needed to id this confidentially, assuming pleurocystidia is absent this seems to at least be in subgenus Candolleana. Do the spores turn hyaline in KOH? Are brachybasidioles present? And these are a bit pale for P. candolleana. Assuming the spores turn hyaline I would try P. luteopallida, assuming they don’t, maybe P. incerta or P. candolleana.
