Integument: Body surface dull, roughly punctate; antennal segments I to III densely tuberculate; antennal segments I to IV, legs, and abdominal sterna clothed with short, semidecumbent to decumbent
, silvery, bristlelike setae.
It is readily distinguished by a combination of perennial habit, decumbent
or ascending stems, minutely puberulent pedicels all around, two stamens, broadly obovate-orbicular petals 0.
Margin with dense row of larger squamules; the two longitudinal ridge and anterior margin with erect, posterior margin with posteriorly decumbent
or creeping (never erect); roots few to non-existent; megaspores nearly smooth S.
Likewise, a decumbent
growth form reduces the probability or amount of ungulate herbivory compared to taller more erect forms, and has also been frequently reported in heavily grazed grass populations (Hickey, 1961; Peterson, 1962; McNaughton, 1979; Detling and Painter, 1983).
Small, rhizomatous, decumbent
, perennial herbs; ascending stems to 5(-8) cm tall, branching from the base.
Thallus subpseudoparenchymatous, wiry, forming entangled and decumbent
mats, up to 3 cm high.
All Parodiolyra species are perennial, growing in erect clumps, sometimes slightly decumbent
or recurved, with rarely branched culms and symmetrical, lanceolate to broadly oval leaf blades (Oliveira and Longhi-Wagner, 2001).
Thorax: Pronotum: anterior margin noticeably separated from remainder of pronotum; each pronotal callus with weakly developed tubercles, divided by shallow incision; anterior lobe also with two obtuse tubercles, each contiguous with lateral margin of each callus; anterior lobe covered with irregular, long, decumbent
setae; posterior lobe more shiny than anterior lobe, almost devoid of setae, with weakly developed swelling medially, reaching posterior margin of pronotum.
These responses were caused by reduced lodging (Figure 2A) and changes in plant height (Figure 2B) and plant architecture such as more compact and less decumbent
leaves (ESPINDULA et al.
sectio Repentia Main axis procumbent Yoshida or decumbent
forming secondary haptera on the ventral face; primary axes branched on the dorsal face of main axis; receptacles compressed to flattened.
Kennedy's diagnoses were extremely brief and inconclusive; Cyanallagma was characterized as <<an Acanthagrion but with male cerci not decumbent
and usually forked>>, and Homeoura as <<an Ischnura but more Enallagmine, with proximal and distal sides of pterostigmata rounded, costal slightly indented at nodus and second segment of male genital ligula with large lateral patches of spines.
Plants with well developed aerial shoot, shoots erect, decumbent
1999) reported that bahiagrass (Paspalum notatum Flugge) varieties with a more upright growth habit and smaller basal diameter were less persistent under continuous stocking than more decumbent
There are no trees in this area, shrubs are typically lower than 2 m and restricted to narrow riparian bands, vegetation is either absent or decumbent
, and searches were conducted before the emergence of leaves.
