Say you have a cap with a small black dot in the center. Is it contamed and not edible? I believe it was caused by too much humidity and leaving water drops on the cap.

It doesn't look that bad or slimy. Just a small black dot on some... but it's caused by what it says there, staying too wet. I take it I can't eat the ones with the black dot? And will it spread to the others on the casing?

If it is indeed contamination, it might spread to other mushrooms.
In my opinion, you should toss the affected caps but you can keep the stem.
Anyway, a pic would really help ...
