Griffith for the suspensor of Gnetum” (Jackson) [dim. of L. funis,-uis (s.m.III), q.v.]; see funicle; see rope, thread;

- carpella ab axi secedentia sed ope nervi liberi a columna centrali diu dependentia (B&H), the carpells, splitting off from the axis but by the use of a free vein hanging for a long time from the central column.
