cheerio
 n.— «At the edge of the burn there was a jumble of downed trees, brambles, and underbrush. Using an ax, Doug hacked his way through the more difficult sections. In the easier spots, the only morels seemed to be “cheerios”—in picker’s parlance, the hollow stems that indicate a fellow forager had been there first.» —“What a rush” by Lawrence Millman in Dawson, Yukon Territory, Canada Boston Globe May 7, 2006.
