squamosa squa·mo·sa (skwā-mō'sə)
n. pl. squa·mo·sae (-sē)
The squama of the temporal bone or of the frontal and occipital bones.
From the note on the ticket, it is a delicious fruit like that of A. squamosa.
The sweet-sop is produced by A. squamosa, also a native of the West Indies and widely cultivated 668 in the tropics.
The accompanying representations of Tridacna squamosa (Figs. 149 and 150) will convey a general idea of the genus.
