- spermoderma crassiusculum, extus ut videtur pellicula cinctum nunc adpressissima,nunc in alam membranaceam expansa, nunc per aquae imbibitionem reticulatim mucilaginosai gelatinosave facta (DeCandolle), the spore-skin somewhat thick, outside, it appears bound by a pellicle [i.e. a delicate outside membrane] , [which is ]sometimes completely appressed, sometimes into a membranaceous wing expanded, sometimes through the absorption of water reticulately made mucilaginous or gelatinous.
