Glossary Term: Cuticle

The skin, or outer layer, of the fruiting body is called the cuticle. Pellis and derm are synonyms. These terms can be combined with others to give indications as to where the skin is. For example, pileipellis means the skin of the cap. Stipitipellis is the skin of the stipe. Cuticle may refer to the stipe or pileus outer hyphal formation.
