Glossary Term: Marcescent

1. Able to revive when moistened. A mushroom which (unlike most species, described as “putrescent”) can dry out, but later revive and continue to disperse spores. The genus Marasmius is well known for this feature, which was considered taxonomically important.
2. Pileus withers but remains attached to the stem.
