lobule: in Coccidae, one of the two distinct parts of which a lobe is sometimes composed.
On one occasion six excellent specimens were obtained in a single drop of blood by merely pricking the lobule of the ear.
The lobule should be shapely, not adherent, not too pendulous and free from grooves extending from the scaphoid fossa.
If the lobule be repaired the ring may cut its way out again, and this may occur three or four times.
Minute, hair-like channels separate the cells one from another, and unite in one main duct leading from the lobule.
At a, a the capillaries of one lobule communicate with those adjacent to it.
The eyebrows and eyelashes have begun to grow and the lobule of the ear is more characteristic.
The ears are large and projecting from the side of the head, and often carry a lobule.
Some children will rub the lobule of the ear, others will suck their fingers, or will stimulate their mouths in other ways.
The third premolar is very large, and agrees with its upper one, excepting the lobule on the inner border.
