Calyx 5-parted, without appendages, enlarged and foliaceous in fruit.
Of the foliaceous group there are likewise two British genera, Melobesia and Hildenbrantia.
The calyx is most generally green in color, and foliaceous (leaf-like) in texture.
The adventitious organs appeared as if they were developments from the thalamus—a kind of foliaceous disc, in fact.
These latter organs may be absent or they may themselves be the subjects of foliaceous development.
It may be observed that the gills or foliaceous lamin are placed at the circumference of the body, and at its smallest parts.
They differ from Ostracea in having no hinge or ligament, and only resemble them in their irregularity and foliaceous structure.
We will begin with the Scarabides, with their heavy compact body, and short antenn, terminated by a foliaceous club.
Ventral tentacular cirrus of second somite of a thin or foliaceous and asymmetrical form.
The varices are simple and not foliaceous as in M. rufus; the shell is more globose.
