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).
Phytoliths with both saddle and bilobate tendencies, called saddle/bilobates, are common in this family, whereas the conventional kinds of saddle and rondel forms are relatively rare.
1-2); posterior prothoracic lobe either bilobate or with a small medial triangular apophysis (Figs.
Dettner (6) noted that second and third instars of European species of the subgenus Guignotites have trilobate labia with labia of larvae of the remaining species bilobate. However, Michat and Torres (7) described larvae of a South American species of Guignotites with two premental lobes, indicating that the number of premental lobes may be employed reliably as a diagnostic character only when dealing with a regional fauna or not at all.
On the other hand, the clypeus of Vadum has a median elevated bilobate projection that appears like a truncate tooth (Figure 3 in Mason's paper).
Coxae of male second legs with a bilobate structure posteroventrally, with scales on lobes distally (Fig.
The main features include three large, bilobate semi-subterranean structures, one single-lobe semi-subterranean structure, two half-eroded semi-subterranean structures on the northeast bank of the site, five heavily constructed tent rings, and one cobble stone cache.
Additional trace fossils from the Khmelnitski Formation, described as "trails of bilobate to three-lobed structure", show general similarity with the Estonian material but in addition have occasional three-lobed development (Palij et al.
During the early embryonic veliger stage (days 5-7) the velum became bilobate and possessed long cilia along its edge.
Bipezia bilobata likely represents the remains of a plant stem or root that has been cast in sediment rather than an ichnofossil; Matthew's other, unillustrated, specimen of Bipezia bilobata (NBMG 3037) shows that the bilobate impressions do not represent an ichnofossil but are broken fragments of shale that superficially resemble the type specimen.
