Now I have the right haptitude regarding the issue.

Are there any especially useful MO photos to point to?

Hapters are stubby little pegs, versus the usual long root-like rhizines.

K+ wine-red. The difference between this species and X.polycarpa is: the latter is supposed to have hapters instead of rhizines. Give me a break – Microsoft Word doesn’t even know what “rhizines” are, so how am I supposed to know what “hapters” are? :-)
