An axis to which a carpel of a compound pistil may be attached, as in the case of the geranium; or which is left when a pod opens.
A columnlike axis in the capsules of mosses.
The upright pillar in the axis of most univalve shells.
The central pillar or axis of the calicles of certain corals.
The inner lip of the aperture, formed on the axis of the shell. May be smooth or dentate, but previous sculpture (such as spines or webs) are smoothed over during growth.
Central pillar of shell.
The ridge of tissue located between the nostrils.
A central column of the capsule. The operculum may stick to it and be raised upon it.

Skin between the nostrils
The partition between the two nostrils that can be grasped between thumb and forefinger.
