The gills change color progressively from white, to pink, then black, previous to auto-digesting (they appear to show to black ink that falls away from the growing old cap. These specimens have been amongst many clusters that have been rising within the grass across the base of a tree at Kingston Maurward close to Dorchester in Dorset, 15 October 2021.
