In addition, the number of mucous cells in the scaleless area of a fishes' body was more than the lepidote
area, as seen in Harris & Hunt (1975) study that shows that fins have significantly fewer mucous cells than the rest of the body.
tinctoria plant is monoecious, and indumentums consist of extremely intense, sessile, and peduncle stellate or lepidote
hairs, next to simple hairs.
Leaflets with both surfaces lepidote

The evidence includes complete Lepidote
fossils found near the dinosaurs in Chewore.
Lithophytic rosulated herbs up to 2 m high; leaves fleshy, leaf sheaths straw colored and brown on the adaxial surface, pale brown to brown on the abaxial surface; inflorescence terminal; pistillate inflorescences twice branched; staminate inflorescences thrice branched, forming large panicles with up to 97 primary branches; peduncles sparsely lepidote
; staminate flowers greenish white, tightly arranged in the apical portion of primary branches and loosely arranged in the basal portion, pistillate flowers greenish brown, loosely arranged, appearing sub-whorled, secondary branches longer than the primary bracts, filaments in the male flowers 3-5.5 mm long, anthers 1-2 mm long, green; capsules ovoid, brown, 1-1.3 cm long, 3-7 mm in diameter.
Sepals lanceolate, (4-)5(-7)-nerved, 4.8-5.5 x 1.2 mm densely lepidote
on the distal half.
Leaves 17 to 20 in number, coriaceous, densely rosulate, suberect, forming a funnelform rosette; sheaths ovate, 12-17 x 9.5-10 cm, inconspicuously lepidote
, green toward the apex, strongly coriaceous; blades narrowly subtriangular-lanceolate, not narrowed at the base, 15-24 x 5-6 cm, green, inconspicously and sparsely white-lepidote mainly adaxially to glabrous, nerved, suberect with recurved apex, apex acuminate.
The species present distinct basal rhizomes, lepidote

Bill Hicks, a longtime rhododendron enthusiast from the Puget Sound area, will present a program on "Lepidote
Rhododendrons" at 7 p.m.
Inflorescence is central, a 1-pinnate erect panicle, with pink-white lepidote
bracts, flowers have a light purple or lilac corolla while the stamens and stigma are exerted.
Subtitled Volume I, Lepidotes
, the book covers the scaly (lepidote
) rhododendrons, which include about half of all species, including those Maddenii kinds that flourish in the California fog belt.
