  1. Alternative form of epiphloeum.
    • 1839, John Lindley, An Introduction to Botany, Longman, Orme, Brown, Green, and Longmans; third edition, Book I., page 90:
      Usually each stratum has a separate growth, which takes place by the addition of new matter to its interior; thus the endophlœum, or liber, grows next the alburnum, the mesophlœum next the epiphlœum, and the epiphlœum next the mesophlœum; the epidermis does not grow at all.
