Figure 2: Score plot obtained from PCA that allowed the distinction of the evaluated material with respect to its morphological parts, : pilei; ×: whole mushrooms; ⊕: stipes, and with respect to its physiological stages of maturity, ∘: immature pilei; •: immature stipes; △: mature pilei; ▲: mature stipes; □: immature whole mushrooms; ■: mature whole mushrooms. In the second scatter plot, the evaluated characteristics do not allow the complete distinction between samples of immature and mature whole mushrooms.
