McCarthy (1987) proposed that the relatively simple scale microornamentation in sea snakes (Laticauda colubrina: brachylamellate basally, cellular polygonal imbricate apically; McCarthy 1987, Price and Kelly, 1989) when compared to the relatively more complex microornamentation of terrestrial elapids was "perhaps connected with an anti-fouling strategy".

At the bottom of the sinus tract was a small cluster of serous glands that were lined with columnar cells with clear cytoplasm and basally located nuclei.
Although there is no consensus concerning the precise phylogenetic position of the monocotyledons within the angiosperms, most studies suggest that the monocotyledons are diverged from a common ancestor with a basally diverged dicotyledon group.
