Description:

Open mixed woodland on bank side next to stream growing from Hazel or Ash stump could not tell as they were entwined together.One mature and one emerging cap very dark brown-black greasy but when dry powder came of like coco size 5cm.The gills were free and white but turned pinkish overnight spore print pinky.The stem was 5cm yellowish to me,could not detect as smell but that may have just been me.I have gone through the books and I cannot pin down which it is as none seem to have this colour stem any idea's greatly appreciated.

not 100%

I wish it was but my gills were not chrome yellow but the stipe fits well.I am not sure if they were on the turn to go pink and loose the colour or is that wishful thinking on my part.
