Black mushroom with a central depression, and white adnate gills that turned black. Flesh white, turning black with age. Stipe whitish soon becoming black with handling. It was a bit old when found, therefore I didn’t observe any staining other than black stage. Found in mixed woods near hardwoods. All parts are brittle.
