We prefer the terms "acicular," "ciliform," and "setiform hairs" to describe the simple pluricellular trichomes that are usually dark red in color with acute tips, and "clavate hairs" for the minute simple and branched, pluricellular hairs that are pale in color and bear clavate cells at their apices or along their length.

I will use the terms "ciliform," "setiform," and "acicular hairs" to describe the simple pluricellular trichomes that are usually dark red in color with acute tips, and "clavate hairs" for the minute, simple and branched, pluricellular hairs that are pale in color and bear clavate cells at their apices or along their length.
