contiguous (adjective) – sharing a common edge or boundary, but differentiated into adjacent, structures touching one another. Because of the very similar spelling the term is frequently confused with continuous; e. g., a thallus is contiguous if composed of closely adjoining areoles, it is continuous, if it is not subdivided. Related terms: adjoining.
