This fungus looked fully black to the eye but the camera flash has found some colour in the gills.
About 60mm tall, and maybe 20mm across the cap.
Found in very sandy soil with some grasses, mosses and lichens. Local forest was dominated by small eucalyptus but contained some banksia, sword grasses, bracken and a few small acacia.
These are notoriously tricky to guarantee species as there are several with black cap and stipe. The gills also being almost black is indicative.
Reference is Genevieve Gates wonderful book 'A Field Guide To Tasmanian Fungi" page 74.
