anatomy mantle outer mantle layer {apart from tip} pores between cells abundance

(if mantle pseudoparenchymatous) Anastomosis pores between cells of pseudoparenchyma. Such pores are distinct from incomplete septa; pores are generally rather thin. 'Infrequent' and 'abundant' are subject to personal experience, and do not refer to the frequency within the cells, but to the frequency they occur throughout the mantle. If there is any difficulty to decide whether 'infrequent' or 'abundant' should be used, enter both.

  1 infrequent
  2 abundant
