for the ID, which I was not able to do, maybe on the account of the dissonant features you noticed.

blue tinges on the stipe, metuloid cystidia, spore size, clamps on the pileipellis and habitat on Quercus all point to Pluteus salicinus

although you can see some ascending elements in the pileipellis the general organization is parallel to the surface (cutis); in a true Hispidoderma the disposition, septation and shape of the elements in the pileipellis is different.

Microscopy added.

I think that all the data from microscopy point to Pluteus sect. Hispidoderma; However I was not able to find the name for this specimen.
