Expert Answer:

The Velum or Veil is a horizontal membrane, connecting the margin of the pileus with the stipes. The Annulus, is that part of the veil which remains next the stipes, which it surrounds like a loose collar.
The pileus is the uppermost part of the plant of the Agaricus. The basidia of agaricus are the cells on the apex of which the spores of such plants are formed.
