The full-grown larva of the Ophiuroids is known as a pluteus.
The recorded edible species are found in Volvaria, Clitopilus, and pluteus.
The recorded species of pluteus have their habitat on tree stumps, sawdust, or upon fallen timber.
Driesch has found that a tropism underlies the arrangement of the skeleton in the pluteus larvae of the sea-urchin.
It is the diminutive of pluteus, a shed or penthouse, from its conical cap.
The name of pluteus was given generally to all kinds of covering with hurdles or with skins.
The smallest fragment which is capable of reaching the pluteus stage possesses the mass of about one-eighth of the whole egg.
It grew abundantly there, along with Lepiota Americana and pluteus cervinus.
