I guess you are right but I cannot re-check because I do not have material. It is all deposited in the herbarium of Vienna University. I have sent an e-mail that they shall check it.

Microscopic details?

Could you give some microscopic details of your collection? Because the dark greyish to blackish colors of the fruitbodies reminds me to E. rouxii. Here you could find a good portrait of this species:
