Any particular smell? With a sweetish smell, fraudans is an option. Does the stem have cystidia all the way down, or just on the upper half?
Spores and cheilocystidia would also be nice to see.

Thank you Irene for your comment.Indeed, inocybes are difficult even for experienced mycologists. Yes, it is reddening in the touched zones (first) then it becomes completely brown.I’ll try to do microscopy observations (the specimens are nos a bit old !). Will add them ASAP.

it seems to be reddening and not quite as rimose as members of the fastigiata group, but I rarely put names on Inocybe species without microscopy.
Have you considered erubescens?

Fastigiata group?
