Furthermore, whether a bilobate phytolith is transverse or axial could depend on the initial sites of silicification, whether on the two lateral walls (in the case of transverse-bilobates) or the proximal and distal end-walls (for axial-bilobates).

Perhaps significantly, long-short cell alternation is rare or absent in some species with pronounced costal rows of bilobates (whether axial or transverse), notably Streptochaeta, Oryza, Pharus and Brachyelytrum, suggesting that long-short patterning is not expressed (or rarely expressed) in these species.
Trackways, including those assignable to various ichnospecies of Diplichnites, Protichnites, and Stiallia, predominate in this ichnocoenosis, with subordinate vertebrate trackways (types A, B, C, and F of Keighley and Pickerill 1998), bilobate trails (Cruziana problematica), and pits (Rusophycus isp.
They were produced as "resting" marks (Rusophycus) and rare bilobate trails (Cruziana), but not as basal expressions of shallow burrows dug through what is now the host sandstone.

The root is bilobate with long, thin lobes (mesial lobe longer than distal lobe).

Morphological studies also reveal no forms mistakable for rice bilobates and glume hair cells (Clifford & Watson 1977; Metcalfe 1960; Terrell & Wergin 1981).
genus specific) phytoliths were revealed, including distinctive bilobates and flat lobed bodies from leaves, and 'bottle'-shapes and 2-celled hairs from glumes.
