No specimen available

Pretty grouping of brown capped mushrooms fruiting on the ground. Caps 2-3 cm. Gills appeared black. Spore print dark chocolate. Unfortunately, the mushroom dissolved into black inky mess overnight.


Spore print with liquifying mushroom cap. This is the top of the cap. Was unable to turn it over as it turned into a blob.
