Parts of Mushrooms


Mushroom Parts Labeled by 1stChineseHerbs


Mushrooms have a variety of different parts. See the diagram on the left to identify what each part of the mushroom is.


Cap: The cap is the top of the mushroom (and often looks sort of like a small umbrella or fan). Mushroom caps can come in a variety of colors but most often are brown, white, or yellow.


Gills, Pores, or Teeth: These structures appear under the mushroom's cap. They look similar to a fish's gills.


Ring: Is the tissue around the upper part of the mushroom stem.


Stem or Stipe: The stem is the tall structure that holds the cap high above the ground.


Volva: The volva is the protective veil that remains after the mushroom sprouted up from the ground. As the fungus grows, it breaks through the volva.


Mycelium: The mycelium of a mushroom is the vegetative body of fungi: a mass of branching filaments (hyphae) that spread throughout the nutrient substratum (an underlying layer) as defined by the McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific & Technical Terms, 6E, Copyright © 2003 by The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc.
