agaric
Referring to a mushroom's spore bearing surface appearance.
- agarics are mushrooms in the family Agaricales and comprise those mushrooms that have gills -

Some gills are very blunt, almost like little ridges, rather than being very distinct and gill-like.Photo of the undersurface of golden chanterelles showing the blunt ridged gills.
In some mushrooms, like these Chanterelles, gills can be so blunt as to almost being hard to see.

Some gills are very distinct and close together ( crowded )Photo demonstrating the fairly close to almost crowded gills of a Russula.

Others very broad and decurrent ( running down the stalk )Photo demonstrating the large, broad gills of a Pleurotus ( otster mushroom ).
