scabers
- referring to stalk's surface appearance -

A group of hairs tightly joined into a short strand-like cluster looking a bit like scales.
Usually scabers are of a darker color than the stalks background color so they stick out as a distinguishing feature which is important in indentification of certain mushrooms.
