I found the print and took a picture of it with the print from observation – 66487 next to it, it got a little smeared in storage, but it should be enough to show the difference between jet black and really dark brown.

I did, but I am not seeing any brown tones in the spore print at the front- the other two prints, the brown colour is apparent.

to its maximum size, there are a small amount of brownish tones, at the very least its not jet black.

Either the aluminum foil is skewing the colour of your spore prints, or I think you may have a mixed collection, as the spore print in the forefront looks black and the other two look dark brown..

I tried printing the pallid gilled specimen and got nothing, looks to be sterile.

Still fruiting.

They’ve still have been fruiting at this spot pretty regularly and I found one with neat pallid gills today, so I added another image.

It’s interesting how dark the P. foenisecii can look sometimes.. Those still are most definitely them though.
