From LIAS glossary
Jump to: navigation, search

lecanorine (adjective; variant spelling: lecanoroid) – referring to apothecia that have a thalline margin in addition to a proper margin. The thalline margin of lecanorine apothecia is usually well developed, whereas the proper margin is often strongly reduced or almost absent. The term zeorine has also been used for apothecia that have both a proper and a thalline margin. However, all lecanorine apothecia originally have at least some hyphae that are part of the proper exciple, even if these cannot always be distinguished as a pronounced separate part. Related terms: zeorine, parathecial crown.
