- [alga] est membrana nempe epidermidis, quae ab interiore separatur et inflatur, dum strati interioris pars denudata sensim novo epidermide tegitur, quae aliquando sporifera evadit, unde sporae tunc membrana duplici coopertae sunt (Agardh), there is a membrane, namely of the epidermis, which is separated from the interior and inflated, then the denuded part of the inner layer gradually is covered with a new spidermis, which becomes at some time spore-bearing, from where then the spores are enveloped with a double membrane.

- [Fissidens; moss] folia conferta, basi se invicem subtegentia, complanata vel unum versus latus dejecta, the leaves compact, nearly cocealing each other alternately [i.e. one after the other] at the base, complanate or one [leaf] lowered toward the side.
