Glossary Term: Stipe Trama

Although the stipe trama is continuous with the pileus trama, an imaginary line conveniently separates the stipe from the pileus. Below this line the hyphae of the stipe trama run more or less longitudinally yet they frequently intertwine. Many mushrooms have stipe strama composed of typical thread-like hyphae interlaced with laticefers, oleiferous hyphae, or sphaerocysts. The hyphae of the pileus and stipe trama can vary in the following ways: the thickness of the wall, the type of branching, the presence or absence of clamp connections and their presumed functions. They can also possess a variety of pigments, and can react with different chemical reagents.
