[> L. lacunosus,-a,-um (adj.A), full of holes, ponds or sloughs; full of hollows, gaps or cavities]; cf. spongiosus,-a,-um (adj.A); cf. porose; see pitted;

- siliqua triangularis, pyramidata, rostrata, crassa, intus suberosa et lacunosa, basi utrinque cornuta (B&H); silique triangular, pyramidate, rostrate, thick, corky within and full of cavities (lacunae), horned at the base on both sides.

- [fungi] pileus parum lacunosus (S&A), pileus somewhat lacunose.

- [fungi] stipite breviore (ceterum albicante-subtomentoso caviusculo passim lacunoso) (S&A), with the stipe shorter (otherwise whitish-somewhat tomentose, somewhat hollow or everywhere lacunose [i.e. full of cavities or pits].

- [fungi] Peziza alutacea. varr. a, communis; b. vesiculosa; c. undulata: Varr. omnes tres extus furfure tenui albido conspersae. In a, exemplis minoribus mixta majora nonnulla, plus minus difformia, basi intus rugosa, extus valde lacunosa: haec gradatim transeunt in [var.] b, monstrosam, saccatam, margine varie incisam, intus colliculoso-costatam saepe pustulato-vesiculosam (S&A), all three varieties sprinkled with a thin whitish scurf. In [var.] a, some larger mixed with smaller samples, more or less deformed [i.e. not typical in shape], inside at the base rugose [i.e. wrinkled], outside strongly deeply pitted: these gradually transforming into b, strongly aberrant [i.e. monstrous], saccate, on the margin variously cut into, inside [lumpy]-ribbed [i.e. with lumpy ribs], often pustulate-vesiculose [i.e. bladdery].

- [fungi] cupula exacte digitaliformis; basi obliqua, hinc plus minus ventricosa, nonnumquam versus stipitem sublacunosa (S&A), the cupula strictly finger-shaped, oblique at the base, from this place more of less ventricose, sometimes toward the stipe nearly lacunose [i.e. deeply pitted].

- [fungi] stipite sursum incrassato sublacunoso (S&A), with the stipe upwards thickened, somewhat lacunose [i.e. pitted].

- legimus enim fungillum rarissimum in ligni semiputridi superficie lacunosa olim serra truncata (S&A), for we collected the most rare fungillus one time on the surface full of cavities of half-rotted wood cut across with a saw.

- [fungi]stipes varius, nunc totus laevis, nunc satis lacunosus (S&A), stipes various, sometimes the whole is smooth, sometimes quite lacunose [i.e. full of pits or depressions.

- [fungi] stipite (in nostra tamen magis ac pluries) sulcato-lacunoso (S&A), with the stipe (however in ours to a greater extent and more frequently) sulcate-fissured.

- [fungi] pileus crassus compactus durus, saepe inaequalis hinc inde sublacunosus, the pileus thick compact tough, often asymmetrical here and there somewhat pitted.

- [fungi] stipes saepe cavus, lacunis variis saepius profundis obsitus (S&A), the stipe often hollow, beset with various more often deep cavities.

- [mosses] peristomii dentes 16 fusci profunde bifidi, saepe ad basin lacunosi, cruribus filiformibus articulatis varioque modo simul concretis (Mueller), teeth of the peristome 16, brownish-black, deeply bifid, often at the base lacunose [i.e. with gaps or holes], with the forks filiform, jointed, and at the same time grown together in various degrees.

- [mosses] perist. dentes plus minus perfecti erecti breves pallidi linea media longitudinaliter plus minus divisi vel lacunosi obtusati angusti (Mueller), the teeth of the peristome more or less perfect [i.e. complete], erect, short, pale, more or less divided lengthwise by the median line or full of holes, nearly obtuse, narrow.
