pileus

(noun) The umbrellalike fruiting structure forming the top of a stalked fleshy fungus, such as a mushroom; the cap.

Synonyms: cap

Usage: The recipe instructs the chef to separate the pileus from the stalk, presumably because the former adds more flavor to the dish.

Dense pileus can be seen stretched away on every side by the military red fairies' cave, above which if it be true that this bird frequent the Realms of your heart ...Say not that our romance is past or passion spent, till you have lain a night on these green banks where cherry trees grow.

Pileus (meteorology)


Pileus clouds can be indicators of severe weather (which has the kind of instability that can cause air to rise rapidly), as was the case with the one in the picture below, snapped over a storm west of Pensacola, Fla.


A pileus cloud at the top of a storm cloud diffracts the sun's light creating an iridescence. The photo was taken on Aug. 11 in Perdido Key, west of Pensacola, Fla.
