This mushroom will sometimes have sterile sections on the gills, giving it a blotchy appearance.

This species has dark colored spores, but the gills don’t change colors till they are mature. You can see dark colored gills from these two other observations I have made:

I will try to add some microscopy soon.

Spore color?

This looks like a light spored species rather than a black spored Coprinopsis to me. I’d guess a Leucocoprinus, but the pileus ornamentation looks too furry (or tomentose if you want to get technical). In that regard it is similar to a Coprinopsis. Also the gills are too widely spaced for the Coprinopsis species I’m aware of.
