Hey there, the plasma membrane is composed of the phospholipid bilayer. While there are many lipid bilayers in the cell, only the one at the cell surface is called the plasma membrane.
Hope this helps

Too late, but yes, the plasma membrane consists of the phospholipid bilayer: they separate the interior from outside environment of a cell to regulate the exchange of substances.
