Endopleura,-ae (s.f.I), also endopleuron,-i (s.n.II), abl. sg. endopleuro: the inner coating or integument of a seed - called also tegmen (WIII) [> Gk. endo- ‘within’ + pleura,-as (s.f.III) = pleuron (s.n.II), a rib = Lat. costa,-ae (s.f.I); “mostly in the plural, the ribs, the side, the flank; the side of things and places (Liddell & Scott]; see tegmen,-inis (s.n.III).

NOTE: the nom. & acc. pl. of endopleuron is endopleura, gen. pl. endopleurorum, which can be confused with the feminine singular alternative word;

- embryo parvus v. longiusculus, radicula intra basin albuminis duplicatura endopleuri vaginata (B&H), embryo small or rather longer, with the radicle inside the base of the albumin sheathed by the doubling of the endopleuron.

- embryon ex endopleurae figura hippocrepicorenatum (F. Mueller), the embryo [> embryon (s.n.II)], from the shape of the endopleura, is horse-shoe-crowned.

- semina loculis solitaria, ovoidea, testa crassa carnosa, tegmine tenui endopleurae adhaerente, albumine corneo rimoso (B&H); seeds with locules solitary, ovoid, with the testa thick, fleshy, with the integument thin, adherent to the endopleura.

- semina erecta, saepe exsculpta; testa ossea; endopleura interdum rugosa; albumen cartilagineum, nunc ruminatum (B&H), seeds erect, often pitted; the testa boney; the endopleura sometimes rugose; the albumen cartilagineous, sometimes ruminate [chewed].

- semina adscendentia, compressa, testa membranacea, endopleura carnosa (B&H), seeds ascebing, compressed, the testa membranaceous, the endopleura fleshy.

- embryo viridis, incurvus, exalbuminosus, endopleura tenui inclusus (B&H), embryo green, incurved, without endosperm, enclosed with a thin endopleura [=singular].

- semina péndula v. axi horizontaliter affixa, angulata, compressa, testa crustácea v. ossea, hilo magno, endopleura membranacea, albumine carnoso (B&H), seeds pendulous or horizontally fixed to the axis, angled, compressed, with the testa crustaceous or boney, with the hilum large, with the endopleura membranaceous [abl. sg.], with the albumin fleshy.

- testa membranacea, endopleura (albuminis strato) tenui dura (B&H), texta membranaceous, with the endopleura (with the layer of albumen) thin, hard.
