there are several differences

Melanoleuca is a tricholomataceae and it is omogeneous, pluteus is heterogeneous. it means that the stem doesn’t separate easily from the cap in this genus. In Melanoleuca there is a slight decurrence by a little tooth.Melanoleuca are called the T mushroom in italy for its typical shape that reminds the capital letter. Pluteus grows on wood(buried or not) , Melanoleuca on soil. Hope this helps

That is something …

hard to explain by words but easy to use in the field, after you find some dozens of each. Of course, you have to look for spores prints and, even better, microscopy, to get the knowledge.

Difference between Pluteus?

What do you see here and/or in general that tells you this is Melanoleuca vs Pluteus?

Nightmare not only for you.

It happens the same with me. I (never) rarely saw the presumably existent cheilocystidia, though I made only a few attempts in microscopy. I have no idea what these can be.
