Umbonate, bossed; furnished with a low, rounded projection like a boss (umbo).The Elements of Botany
The pileus is often umbonate or gibbous, and the center is often darker than the margin.
The pileus is first nearly cylindrical, then conic, becoming bell-shaped and finally nearly expanded, when it is umbonate.
When the center of the pileus is raised in the form of a boss or knob it is umbonate (Fig. 242).
