- (algae) tribum ita justis limitibus circumscriptam, classem a vicinis Lichenibus et Fungís aeque distinctam dies postera forsan monstrabit (Agardh), after the tribe thus circumscribed by their rightful limits, a future day shall perhaps demonstrate a uniformly distinct class from near the Lichens and Fungi.
Vicinus,-i (s.n.II), abl. sg. vicino: a neighbor; (of time) a contemporary; also fem. vicina,-ae (s.f.I)

- [moss] seminula itidem sunt fusca, rotunda, nonnunquam quibusdam pressione forsitan vicinorum, in ovatam figuram reductis (Hedw.) the seminula (i.e. spores] in like manner, are blackish-brown, rounded, sometimes perhaps by certain of its neighbors, with pressure, reduced into an ovate shape.
