lateral

Rfv-sense: "(botany) Pertaining to the girth of an organ, rather than its thickness or length." -- Looks unlikely, and I don't find it in other dictionaries. The only botanical sense I came across says that the word is used of leaves, branches or buds that protrude directly from the stem of a plant. --Hekaheka (talk) 16:28, 19 February 2013 (UTC)

  • RFV-failed: no quotations provided. As an auxiliary check, MWO does not have the sense. --Dan Polansky (talk) 18:13, 21 August 2013 (UTC)
