(in fungi) “a temporary changeable foot-like protrusion of protoplasm in the plasmodium of Myxogastres” (Jackson); (in fungi) “(of Myxomycetes), a protoplasmic process from a myxamoeba” (Ainsworth & Bisby); (in fungi) “(of Myxomycetes) a protrusion of the protoplasm of a myxamoeba, which may be drawn in, or into which the whole mass may move” (S&D);

- pseudopodia simplicia e variis locis corporis sed praecipue postice extendentia, pseudopodia simple from various places of the body but especially at the rear stretching out (Stearn).

- [Aulacomnium androgynum] planta semper pseudopodiis iuvenitur (C. Mueller), plant always found with pseudopodia.

- [Aulacomnium turgidum] ex adnotationibus Hübeneri pseudopodiis illis Georgiae pellucidae similibus inveniri dicitur (C. Mueller), according to the annotations [i.e. explanatory notes] of Hübener it is said to be found with those pseudopodia similar to Georgia pellucida [=Tetraphis pellucida].

Proboscis,-is (s.f.III), abl.sg. probosce, nom. & acc. pl. probosces: proboscis, a more or less elongated terminal projection or horn; (in bryophytes) “specialized leaf or leaf extension consisting mainly of costa, that may bear gemmae; in Calymperaceae and Streptopogon” (Magill 1990).
