paraphysoid (noun, pl. paraphysoids;ascocarp term; synonyms: trabercular pseudoparaphysis, trabercula, tinophysis) – an interascal or pre-ascal hyphae derived from an ascolocular development forming a plectenchyma that resembles pseudoparaphyses; frequently net-like and abundantly anastomosing and then often developing into an interascal pseudoparenchyma. Attention: The term trabercula for paraphysoids should be avoided because it can easily be confused with trabecula (spelt without the "r), i. e., specialized structures on the lower side of some Umbilicaria species.
