Abstract

To the Editor.—  The hairs in so-called "pseudopili annulati"1 are real hairs, not imitations; "pseudopili" conveys an entirely wrong impression. The rings are real rings, too, but on a different and more superficial basis, so they come much nearer to being "pseudo" than the hairs do. Actually the condition is just mimicry of pili annulati, but you can hardly put "pseudo" in front of the entire name, even though this seems to be what the authors intended.In the upshot, the only satisfactory solution, I submit, is to call it "pili pseudoannulati."
