the most visible part of the ear, the concave elastic cartilaginous structure attached to the surface of the skull.
Ear-shaped appendages, usually on leaves.
The auricle is part of the external ear. It is shaped and formed by a single irregular plate of elastic cartilage. In humans, it is a vestigial structure.
n. (L. auricle, small ear) any ear-like lobed appendages.
A finger-like appendage or flange of tissue at the junction of the blade and sheath in some grasses. Holds the open sheath to the culm.
A small 'lip' at the base of a grass leaf.

(), an appendage resembling a little ear (T-B, after J. B. Smith); a chamber of the insect heart (T-B); in some Anisoptera (Odonata), oreillets, q.v. (T-B, after Imms; O'Farrell, in CSIRO); in Heteroptera (Hemiptera), variously shaped structure on metapleuron of adult bugs assisting in spreading the products of scent glands from the ostiolar groove upon the evaporatorium of the metathoracic scent gland (Slater); in Melitaea (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae), small, paired invaginations of sides of lamella postvaginalis which extend mediad and dorsad on antrum (Tuxen, after Higgins); in honey bee (Hymenoptera: Apoidea), pollen press, q.v. (T-B; Borror et al.); in andrenid bees (Hymenoptera: Andrenidae), a short membranous process placed laterally on the ligula (T-B, after J. B. Smith).
outer flap of the ear. Also called pinna.
Lobelike structures at the color region of a grass leaf blade.
the externally visible cartilaginous structure of the external ear
Having small ear-shaped lobe or appendage.
A small projecting lobe or appendage, as found at the base of leaf blades of some species of the grass family (Poaceae).
ear-shaped projection found on each side of second abdominal segment of male dragonflies except in the Libellulidae.
An ear-like appendage. (eg: in Rosa)
appendages at the leaf-blade/sheath junction of some grasses. Auricles are usually in pairs but only one may be present and this is termed a sheath lobe.
Small claw like feature which is present where the blade joins the sheath in some grasses, e.g. perennial ryegrass.
Hornlike or clawlike appendage projecting from the base of the leafblade or from the sheath apex; occurs in pairs to each side.
Latin auricula = a little ear.
An ear-like lobe.
an earlike growth on on culm sheaths
Small ear-like projections. Found at the junction of the blade and the sheath in grasses. See drawing of parts of a grass plant.
an ear-shaped appendage at the base of a leaf, leaflet or corolla lobe. adj. auriculate.
Earlike lobe at the base of leaf blades of certain grass species.
The pinna. The cartilaginous structures of the external ear located peripheral to the skull.
The principal projecting part of the ear. Also called the pinna. Something ear shaped such as the upper chambers of the heart. Also called the atria. Auricle is not to be confounded with oracle. Neither the pinna nor the atria possess oracular powers.
An ear-like projection of a pinna or pinnule.
lobe-like structure at the collar of a grass leaf.
an ear-like appendage that occurs at the base of some leaves.
A broad, flattened process that resembles the external ear; in the ear, the expanded, projecting portion that surrounds the external auditory canal, also called pinna; in the heart, the externally visible flap formed by the collapse of the outer wall of a relaxed atrium.
An ear-shaped appendage found on some plant parts, such as on the top margin of grass leaf sheaths.
