the cap became lighter i.e. Faded to whitish, Shall i check for 4 spored basidia
I thought this name fit also when I keyed it out with Agarics and Boleti my Meinhard Moser, stalk fiberous, gills nearly free i.e. not decurrent, in grass,
I don’t know much about H. punicea or H. marchii though…

It looks a lot like the european persistens – unless it’s blackening to a conica..
Looking at spores is usually not rewarding. They vary a lot within a sample, and you might be dealing with just a deviating form. You can, at best, get a statistic probability of one or another species.
