- Florideae, ut ceterae Algae, nulla epidermide tectae sunt, sed membrana exterior frondis a cellulis terminalibus diversarum sérierurn cellularum, quae frondem constituunt, contexta est (Agardh), the Florideae, as in the other Algae, are covered with no epidermis, but the outer membrane of the frond is constructed from the terminal cells of diverse rows of cells, which make up the frond.

- cortex constans complexu celluloso sub epidermide sito , et stratis corticalibus, aliis exterioribus senioribus, aliis interioribus junioribus nomine Libri insignitis (DeCandolle) , the cortex is composed of the cellulose surroundings situated under the epidermis, and with the cortical layers, those outer the older, those inner the younger, are distinguished by the name Liber.
