- seminum testa tenui appressa vix apice minute appendiculata.(B&H), with the testa of the seeds thin, appressed, scarcely minutely appendaged at the apex.

- calcar sepalorum et labelli longissimum, tenue, ovario arcte appressum quocum in bractema membranaceam inclusum(B&H), spur of the sepals and the labellum very long, thin, closely appressed to the ovary to which place it is enclosed in a membranaceous bract.

- [Lipocarpha] squamae hypogynae 2, hyalinae, glumis parallelae, ovario et nuci appressae (B&H), the hypogynous [i.e. seated below the ovary] scales 2, hyaline, parallel to the glumes appressed to the ovary and the nut.

appressoserratus,-a,-um (adj.A), adpressoserratus,-a,-um (adj.A): “when serratures are pressed close to the edge of the body to which they belong” (Lindley).
