The root cortex of older mycorrhizae becomes black and its older parts break off, often resulting in a very thin root remnant at the proximal end of the turgescent ectomycorrhizal tip. Mycorrhizae can become black with age, but this is not always combined with getting carbonized (see 'not carbonizing').
