Very informative. I read the term in a Cornwell novel & wanted to know what it meant.
i've read that it develops in 3 hr after death
I recently examined a female with very distinct bi-lateral tache noire less than 3 hours after her death but after leaving her eyes open in a lighted room, the discoloration appeared to fade to a less distinct band within one hour. At the time of the autopsy two days later the tache noire had disappeared altogether.
