Beveled . . .

Or should I loosely quote Sm. & Thiers: . . . obliquely truncated . . .
If you look at the image (the big sucker in the middle), you will see that the pileus surface does not transition evenly to the margin. There is an abrupt change near/at the margin from the evenness of the surface if you follow the surface curvature toward the margin. Think of the sharpened “bevel” of a knife. The flat face of the knife abruptly changes where the sharpened area of the edge begins. Hence a “bevel.”

nice boletes. and nice that you didn’t have to travel very far to find them. ;)

What exactly is a “beveled” cap margin?
