Observation 22853: Tapinella atrotomentosa (Batsch) Šutara

Notes:
Ok this was growing on the ground not on wood under Eastern Hemlock . I dug under it and found no wood buried. It was growing alone. Gills turned black in KOH
There is a velvet appearance to cap. The stem also has the velvety texture to it and is black typical of T atromentosa. I have found this before here but it always is on wood and the caps are lighter in color when growing on wood. spore print yellow brown.
