The cells of epiderm and hypoderm may be so similar that they appear to form a single tissue.
The stomata of Pine leaves are depressed below the surface and interrupt the continuity of epiderm and hypoderm.
Some cells about the fibro-vascular bundle acquire thick walls with the appearance and chemical reaction of the hypoderm cells.
Epiderm and hypoderm of the leaf similar, appearing as a single tissue; resin-ducts external.
Its leaf-section is peculiar in the remarkable size of the inner cells of the hypoderm, especially in the angles of the leaf.
hypodermis hy·po·der·mis (hī'pə-dûr'mĭs) or hy·po·derm (hī'pə-dûrm')
An epidermal layer of cells that secretes an overlying chitinous cuticle, as in arthropods.
