I aint no contamination expert but I think you are getting paranoid about them. If my shrooms had ;black-grey mycelium I wouldnt worry. If they look healthy to you, eat.

I had one that seem to be likly the one you describe
Is it like this ?



I was told to cut it off. But I am a newbie cultivator and dont want you fuck up your substrate by you cutting it off. Wait for someone else to post, or if you decide to follow my instuctions, use a clean knife and cut it precisely :laugh: Hope I helped

Are the caps to your mushrooms open. Could be spores dropping. Will make the casing a dark purple-black colour.
