- cellulae disci parietibus aequaliter atque pervalde incrassatis praeditae, cells of the disc provided with walls equally and also very strongly thickened.

- parietes radiales cellularum epidermaticarum fibrosi porosi, radial walls of the epidermal cells fibrous, porose.

- parietes tangentiales, tangential walls.

- loculus in locellos parietibus communibus instructos divisus, locule divided into locelli provided with common walls.

NOTE: in classical Latin murus,-i pertained to the wall of a city, whereas paries,-etis indicates the wall (partition) of a house; cf. puteale,-is (s.n.II)), abl. sg. puteale: a stone curb round the mouth of a well; a similar curb placed round any spot (Lewis & Short).

inside or within the walls: intramuralis,-e (adj.B).

pertaining to the wall: parietalis,-e (adj.B), ‘parietal, borne on the wall, pertaining to the wall,’ parietinus,-a,-um (adj.A); cf. tunicatus,-a,-um;

- partes parietales in forma litterae H distinctae, parts pertaining to the wall in the shape of the letter H distinct.
-walled:

in L. comp.:

-septatus,-a,-um (adj.A) in L. comp.;
