- cellulae epidermales membranae capsularum incrassationibus noduliformibus localibus praeditae, epidermal cells of the membrane of the capsules provided with noduliform local thickenings.

- lumen ob parietum incrassationem fere nullum, ad rimam angustam reductum, lumen on account of the thickness of the walls almost none, reduced to a narrow fissure.

- stratum capsulae interiore maximam partem inspissamentis noduliformibus vel spiniformibus, interior layer of the capsule mostly with noduliform or spiniform thickenings.

NOTE: pars, gen.sg. partis (s.f.III), acc. sg. partem, abl. sg. parte, nom. & acc. pl. partes, dat. & abl. pl. partibus, ‘part, portion, sector, piece + incrassata (adj.A), ‘thickened;’

bearing a callus or hardened thickening: callifer,-fera,-ferum (adj.A), callosus,-a,-um (adj.A).

nodular thickenings: knob-like enlargements; in bryophytes “usually applied to the radial wall thickenings that appear as pigmented knobs on exothecial cells when seen in surface view” (Magill 1990): densitas,-atis (s.f.III) nodulosa (adj.A), abl. sg. densitate nodulosa; spissitas,-atis (s.f.III) nodulosa (adj.A), abl. sg. spissitate nodulosa; cellula,-ae (s.f.I) noduloso-incrassata (adj.A), abl. sg. cellula noduloso-incrassata; paries,-etis (s.m.III) nodulose (adv.) incrassatus (adj.A), abl. sg. pariete nodulose incrassato.

wall thickenings: fibril; the fine, fiber-like wall thickenings in hyaline cells and sometimes cortical cells of Sphagnum: fibrilla,-ae (s.f.I), abl.sg. fibrilla, nom. pl. fibrillae, acc. pl. fibrillas, abl.pl. fibrillis.
Thickening (noun): see swelling (noun).
