Glossary Term: Lamellula

(Plural = Lamellulae)

The short gills originating from the outer peripheral edge of the cap but not fully extending to the stem. The presence (or absence) of these gills is sometimes important in identifying gilled mushrooms (i.e. the arrangement of the short gills – random, in tiers, only occurring near the cap margin, etc).
