… I found two webpages where that species is considered: ambmuggia and asturnatura. Both mention the existence of a sterile gill edge formed by cylindric cheilocystidia. Therefore, I made a preparation to observe the gill edge and I already uploaded a (bad) a set of photos with it, where such cheilocystidia are noticeable.
Maybe, this is it! What do you think?
My only concern regards the size of the pileipellis hyphae, for which both webpages mention to be cylindric and narrow (5-8 µm), whereas my measurements gave dimensions up to 10 µm, and none of them mentioned the irregular branched hifas that I observed (the spanish site has a picture of the pileipellis and it looks very different).

and I was thinking of suggesting mollis.. Have you considered Crepidotus autochthonus?

The structure of the pileipellis is very much different from what I’m used to see, for instance, in C. mollis/C. calolepis: Hyphae very irregular, innately septated and branched, with clamps. For the spores I got the following average dimensions:
Me = 8 × 5.8 µm ; Qe = 1.4 (N=25).
