Pileus area index


The Pileus Area Index is the technical name used to denote the size of what is commonly known as the "cap" of a fungal fruiting body. It is particularly characteristic of agarics, boletes, and some polypores, tooth fungi, and ascocarps. It was coined by Asher Tarivona Mutsengi a Zimbabwean student at University of Texas at Austin.
