Glossary Term: Hemiangiocarpus

(Synonymous with Hemiangiocarpous, Hemi-Angiocarpous, and Hemiangiocarpic)

Initially with an enclosed development of the sporocarp, but opening before maturity; during the ontogeny usually enclosed by a proper exciple and a layer of thallus hyphae. Partly angiocarpous. The gill tissue is concealed by a veil (or otherwise) for a portion of the growth cycle, but eventually the gills become exposed. A pseudoexciple. This feature is characteristic for many lichenized ascomycetes, including Peltigeraceae and Stictaceae.
