Glossary Term: Membranous Veil

A separate or separable (distinguished) tissue consisting of the veil that initially covers the gills by growing connected to both the cap margin to the stem until growth forces the veil to detach, exposing the gills and allowing spores to have more direct access to the air and ground upon ejection or detachment from their basidia.
