I believe these are cheilocystidia. Dropped a piece of gill in Congo red and one part of the perimeter featured these, in abundance. Shapes quite variable.

Crassisporium funariophilum is a mere 11 new syllables to try to remember in sequence :-) But, this looks like a possibility.

I don’t think Tubaria, here. Spore print was thin, but appeared to be very dark (as opposed to the yellow/ocher Tubaria prints). Also, spores seemed large for Tubaria.
