Papillary immature metaplasia forming either an exophytic mass of filiform
papillae (A) or a flat-topped lesion with the predominantly inverted growth of rete pegs (B).
Prostomium rounded, without antennae but with a pair of filiform
annulated palps (each with 15-20 articles), and two red eyes.
--Spinules on cymbium poorly developed, with thinner, almost filiform
With the passage of exposure time period; gradual increase in degree of blistering and rusting were experienced while cracking and filiform
corrosion were not detected during exposure time period.
Stipules green, filiform
, obsolete, 4.5-6 X 0.5-1 mm, caducous.
terrea (Table 1 : FL); width of fastigium about 1/3 to 1/2 the length of pronotum; fastigium projected forward, flat, horizontal, narrowing toward apex and fusing with the frontal ridge to form a rostrum; frons strongly concave below rostrum; frontal ridge weak, and obsolete below the medial ocellus; eyes globular, slightly longer than wide; antenna fine, filiform
, but slightly expanded at the base; antenna longer than the head and pronotum together.
papillae, which are conical or branched, consisting of one main thick process and several slender accessory processes, can be found on the apex and body of the tongue, pointing principally towards the pharynx (Fig.
The requirement for filiform
corrosion testing is that the coating system should not exhibit filiform
growth extending beyond 0.25 in.
The morphology of the collagen fibers at the acupoint area can be influenced differently with the filiform
needles of different sizes .
The pseudopenis is located on the right tentacle of the specimens; it is of sigmoidal shape and has a filiform
extension at its end corresponding to a filament (Fig.
The common corrosion types are mainly galvanic corrosion, pitting corrosion, filiform
corrosion and stress corrosion of these.
arieticanis showed cyst between 53-163 [micro]m diameter, and a thin wall with filiform
projections with 6-12 [micro]m (DUBEY et al., 1988).
