'mane;' a loose panicle whose axis falls to pieces, as in certain grasses; “having a mane or crest, crested” (Lewis & Short); (in zoology) the mane of any animal; the crest of a helmet, also the crest of a serpent; see crested;

- [Avena elatior] gramen avenaceum elatius, juba longa splendente (Desfont.) a grass like Avena, taller, with a long, splendid juba [i.e. loose panicle]. [also] Gramen avenaceum elatius, juba argentea longiore, with the juba [i.e. loose panicle] silvery, longer.

- juba 2-pedalis stricta sicca grisea, panicle 2-feet long narrow when dried gray (Stearn).

- [fungi] continua tegumento isti stipitem circumcirca obtegit juba atra, fascicularis sed plerumque parum compexa, saepe longissima, pro diverso fungi situ nunc pendula, nunc ligno incumbens ac subirrepens, radiculiformis (S&A), the continuous black juba [i.e. mane or crest] covers completely all around the stipe with that tegument [i.e. covering], fascicular [i.e. in clusters] but usually somewhat felted, often very long, for the different situs [i.e. manner of lying] of fungi, sometimes pendulous, sometimes resting on, or somewhat creeping into the wood, resembling radicles.
