  • adnate - referring to gill attachment to stalk - when the gill edge nearest to the stalk is broadly attached to it.
  • agaric - referring to a mushrooms spore bearing surface appearance - agarics are mushrooms which have gills and are in the family Agaricales.
    Gills can be broad, blunt, thin, thick, close, crowded and distant.
  • annulus - referring to a stalk feature - a remnant of partial veil tissue which clings to the stalk during the mushroom's growth. Sometimes in the deterioration of the veil tissue the annulus is hardly noticeable in some species. With other species it can be a remarkable observable ring that can slide up and down the stalk.
  • apical pore - referring to a mushroom surface such as in puffballs for example - an opening at the top of the spore case from which the mature spores are discharged.
    If referring to a mushroom spore - the apical pore is a germ pore at one end of the spore, that is, an opening in the spores cell wall from which the germinated mycelium emerges during growth.
  • areolate - referring to a caps surface - the appearance of being cracked into various shaped patches, like a dried out mud flat would appear.

If you thought that worked pretty good try some others.
