Examples of "flexuose"
Culms are basally straight or flexuose (bent alternately in different directions), drooping at the tips. Culm walls are slightly thick.
striations on its anterior two-thirds. The aperture is oval. The posterior angle is acute. The outer lip is thin, showing the external sculpture within. The columella is slender, decidedly flexuose, and very slightly revolute.
It can be recognized after seed dispersal by the wiry, wavy inflorescence stalks (flexuose) that continue to stick out of the clump of leaf blades. The stems are unusual among grasses in that they are solid, even between the nodes, whereas most grasses have hollow stems.
The size of an adult shell varies between 20 mm and 65 mm. The diameter is 16 mm. The whorls are angulated in the middle and nodulous on the angle. Above it the surface is smooth, below the nodules are continued as flexuose wrinkles or ribs, becoming evanescent towards the base of the aperture. The color of the shell is yellowish brown, with usually one or two darker bands.
The branches of the "Acacia macradenia" plant are hairless and smooth. Generally, the younger part of the stem is green and the older parts are brown. Known as phyllodes, the leaf-likes are actually flattened leaf-stalks or petioles. Initially they are bipinnate. The darker phyllodes are typically older and longer have a lanceolate leaf shape compared to the younger phyllodes which are much smaller in size and shape. The "A. macradenia" plant or tree can grow up to in height and spread. The branches are pendulous (loosely hanging) to subpendulous and flexuose (fully bending).
(Original description) The shell is shining, nearly smooth, pale, whitish, straw-coloured, or reddish-tinted. It is, attenuate, graceful and contains 9 whorls. The longitudinal ribs are somewhat prominently twice-angled just below the middle, and obliquely flexuose, shining, and almost smooth. On the penultimate whorl the ribs number 11, on the body whorl 10. The spiral revolving lines are discernible with a lens. The aperture is oblong. The sinus is very wide and somewhat shallow. The outer lip is thin and rounded. The columella is white, straight, callous above and shining. The siphonal canal is a little produced and is broad.
The height of the shell attains 16 mm, its diameter 13 mm. The rather thick, very narrowly perforate shell has a conical shape. It contains 7 to 8 planulate whorls. The first one is eroded, the succeeding are whitish-ashen, radiated with narrow, close and flexuose blackish and violaceous lines. They are spirally cingulate, with 6 lirae on penultimate whorl. The body whorl is subangular, a little depressed above, dilated in the middle. The base of the shell is convex and ornamented with about 8 lirae. The aperture is rhomboidal. The lip is simple. The truncate columella is truncate below.
They have colourful inflorescences of 4 to 20 vivid red and orange subopposite flowers on a divaricately (horizontally) branched stem. The terminal inflorescence can have the form of a cyme or a raceme. These flower from early summer well into fall. The flowers are sessile on a flexuose arched spike. The fertile flowers are hermaphroditic. All stamens have an equal length. The style branches are apically forked. They are pollinated by insects, birds (hummingbirds) or by the wind. The dehiscent capsules are shorter than they are wide.
The stout, rough shell has a very broadly conic shape and is narrowly umbilicated. Its length measures 8 mm. The whorls of the protoconch are small, deeply obliquely immersed in the first turn of the teleoconch. The seven whorls of the teleoconch are with quite strong concavely shouldered summits, the rest well rounded (usually showing decided erosion marks which coincide largely with the lines of growth). The parts bearing the original surface show traces of exceedingly fine spiral striations. The periphery and the base of the body whorl are rather inflated, well rounded, the latter narrowly umbilicated, and marked like the spire. The aperture is broadly oval. The posterior angle is obtuse. The outer lip is rather thick. The columella is stout, thick, somewhat flexuose and reflected. It is provided with a strong fold a little anterior to the umbilicus. The parietal wall is covered by a thin callus.
The shell is elongately turreted. Its color is light brown, with a whitish band in the middle of the whorls. The spire is long and acutely turreted. It contains 12 whorls. The first two whorls are smooth, rounded, forming a somewhat prominent white papillary apex. The other whorls are slopingly convex, slightly impressed below the suture, spirally faintly grooved, obliquely obscurely plicated. The body whorl measures about 2.5ths of the entire length of the shell. It is convex above, attenuated towards the base, scarcely rostrate, nearly smooth with spiral grooves (only visible with a lens) that are irregular and broken up. The oblique wrinkles are almost obsolete. The aperture is rather long and moderately wide. Its interior is tinged with pale pink. The white columella is rather straight and very slightly flexuose. The outer lip is sharp, with a broad posterior sinus, situated between the angle and the suture.
The very coarse and heavy shell has an elongate-ovate shape. Its length measures 9.3 mm. The whorls of the protoconch are small, deeply, obliquely immersed in the first of the succeeding turns. The six whorls of the teleoconch are rather high between the sutures, well rounded with narrowly tabulate summits. They are marked by somewhat retractive lines of growth and numerous, closely laced, wavy spiral striations. The sutures are well marked. The periphery of the body whorl is well rounded and marked like the spire. The base of the shell is slightly prolonged and well rounded. The aperture is ovate, somewhat effuse anteriorly. The posterior angle acute;. The outer lip is very heavy. The columella is strong, flexuose with a strong, broad fold somewhat anterior to its insertion. The parietal wall is covered by a thin callus.
In the silvery underside of the foliage, but in nothing else, this resembles R. arboreum; while in the much divided limb of the corolla, the ten-celled ovary, the stout flexuose style and large stigma, it approaches R. Falconeri, but only in those particulars. The blossoms are only second in size to R. Dalhousiae. On Sinchul, the higher parts of the mountain, at from 8,000 to 9,000 feet of elevation, are more or less clothed with it: on Tonglo, as it approaches 10,000, it is suddenly replaced by the following species, R. Falconeri. It seems to be shy of flowering, this season at least (1848); for it was with difficulty I could procure sufficient specimens to complete my drawing.
The milk-white, smooth shell has a pupiform shape. The length of the shell varies between 3 mm and 4.3 mm.There are at least two small whorls in the protoconch. They form a depressed helicoid spire, whose axis is at right angles to that of the succeeding turns, in the first of which it is about two-thirds immersed. The six whorls of the teleoconch are inflated and sculptured similarly throughout. They are contracted at the sutures, and strongly roundedly shouldered at the summit. A spiral sculpture is wanting. They are marked by sublamellar, flexuose axial ribs, which are only feebly expressed on the first. On the second there are 18, on the third 20, 22 upon the fourth, and 28 upon the penultimate turn, upon which there is a strong varix. The intercostal spaces are about one and one-half times as wide as the ribs, and well impressed. The sutures are constricted. The periphery and the base of the body whorl well rounded. They are marked by the continuations of the axial ribs. The aperture is broadly oval. The posterior angle is obtuse. The outer lip is thin, showing the external sculpture within. The columella is slender, strongly curved, and slightly revolute. It is provided with a weak fold at its insertion.
The height of the shell attains 32 mm, its diameter 38 mm. The broad, rather solid shell has a conical shape. The spire is conic. The apex is generally eroded, corneous or orange colored. The about 7 whorls are, a little convex. They are whitish, painted with oblique flexuose or angular brownish green radiating stripes. Nearly the whole surface is sometimes suflfused with bright green by the erosion of the outer layer. The sculpture consists of inconspicuous incremental striae and very oblique subobsolete folds. The flat base of the shell is very obsoletely lirate. Its middle portion (umbilical tract) is excavated, concave, strongly spirally grooved. The sculpture does not extend into the aperture nor to the edge of the columella, which is nacreous. The large aperture is very oblique, very iridescent and neither lirate nor toothed within. The basal lips and columella are simple,forming a regular curve. The columella shows a strong dentiform fold above. The green parietal wall is eroded and, nearly smooth.
The spores are hexagonal to subrhomboid in frontal view and ellipsoid in side vieww, (5.6)6.7–8(9) x (4) 4.8–6.4 (7.2) x 4–4.8 (5.5) µm. The basidia each produce four spores, and occasionally only two larger spores. The cheilocystidia are 16–27(29) x 4.5–8 µm and lageniform to narrowly lageniform, with a flexuous neck that is 1–2.5 µm broad and sometimes bifurcate. Basidia 18.5–22.5 × 5.5–6.5 µm, cylindrical, four spored, hyaline and thin-walled. Pleurocystidia 12–20 (–32) × 4.5–9 (‒10) µm, fusiform, occasionally conical, clavate or utriform, occasionally bifurcate, hyaline, thin-walled. The subhymenium is ramose-inflated. Pileus trama is radial, with hyphae 5–32 µm, yellowish to yellowish brown, thick walled (0.5–1 µm). Pileipellis an ixocutis, (9–) 12–54 µm wide, hyphae 1.5–4 (–5.5) µm diameter, hyaline and thin-walled. Pileocystidia (10–) 12–28 × 4–9.5 µm, globose, cylindrical, clavate, flexuose or pyriform and thin-walled. Stipitipellis a cutis, hyphae 1.5–9.5 µm diameter, yellowish brown, thin-walled (up to 0.5–0.8 µm thick). Caulocystidia (19–) 22.5–49.5 (–56) × 4–8 (–9.5) µm, cylindrical, lageniform, fusiform or, utriform, or lageniform, hyaline and, thin-walled.
The elongate-ovate shell is milk-white. The shell measures 3.1 mm. The nuclear whorls are small, obliquely immersed in the first of the succeeding turns, above which only half of the last volution projects. The projecting portion extends considerably beyond the outline of the post-nuclear spire. The five post-nuclear whorls are slightly rounded, somewhat constricted at the summit. They are marked by almost vertical lines of growth and very regular, closely spaced, wavy, spiral striations; of the latter about 25 occur between the sutures and the third whorl. The periphery of the body whorl is decidedly inflated and strongly rounded. The base of the shell is moderately long, well rounded, with a narrow umbilicus, marked like the spire. The sutures are moderately impressed. The aperture is large, slightly effuse anteriorly. The posterior angle is acute. The outer lip is very thin. The inner lip is quite long, decidedly flexuose and somewhat reflected. It is provided with a strong fold opposite the umbilical chink. The parietal wall is glazed with a thin callus.
