crazy towering cystidium and spores that resemble RBCs (enlarge to see).

The genus Pluteus is divided into a number of sections based on the structure of the pileipellis, and the presence of thick-walled horned pleurocystidia.
This species looks like it has a pileipellis made up of upright elements (but of course we would like to get microcoscopic evidence for that).
Pluteus flavofuligineus has a pileipellis made up of clavate to sphaeropedunculate cells and is basically smooth.
The European yellow species that has the pileipellis with the long upright elements is P. leoninus. As far as I know, nobody has looked into the North American species.
