The papillary cancers of the skin and the villous cancers of mucous membranes are thus distinguished.
The pileus is somewhat coriaceous, firm, pulvinate, villous.
villous: Beset with short, undivided, hair-like extensions (Fig. 150, d).
The callus of the third glume is short, pointed and villous.
Achenes top-shaped, 5-costate, villous; pappus of 5–10 long thin scales, awn-tipped by the excurrent nerve.
Before leaving the inner aspect of the pedal wing it supplies a deep branch to the heel and the villous tissue.
The pistillum is similarly dotted; the labellum internally striated, trifid, and villous at the apex.
The first glume is rigidly coriaceous, gradually narrowed from a villous base to an erect scabrid awn, 1-nerved.
The villous processes and fringes may take on an exaggerated growth, and give rise to pedunculated and other forms of loose body.
Spikelets are 2- to 3-flowered, distichously racemed, narrowly turbinate, villous.
villous vil·lous (vĭl'əs) or vil·lose (-ōs')
