Your observation indercates you “Recognized by sight” these fungi rather then usesing a refrance. I was surprised that any one could recognized by sight any off the little blue/grey entoloma’s.

I’m not sure I understand, I keyed these out and it is a perfect match for E. asprelloides, the species you mentioned lacks cheilocystidia whereas this collection has abundant clavate cheilocystidia with brown plasmatic pigment in 3%KOH, they measured 40-80 × 15-20µm which is well within the size range given by Horak, the spores of the species you mention are quite a bit smaller also.

Did you truely not key these out? As Entoloma consanguineum also looks very similar.
