Abbreviation: CALEI

Seed sample from: 2011

Measurement: 3.3 x 2.2 x 2.1

Features: Seed are narrower at hilium end, rounding off at opposite side. Hilium end ranges from tapered to pointy in shape. Seeds black, with conspicuous white hilium. A wrinkled seam runs from hilium down the length of the seed in most.

Seed is glossy, and wrinkled or bumpy.

Camassia leichtlinii

Basic Explanations and Assumptions:

The dimensions for the seeds are length x width x depth. The location of the hilum is used as the base of the seed, and the length is measured from hilum to the opposite apex. Where a style is present, the length is measured from the hilum to the bottom of the style. Width is measured at a right angle to the length at the widest part. Depth is measured at a right angle to the intersection of height and width lines.

Measurements included are the mean average for each measurement of ten separate seeds.

All measurements in millimeters unless otherwise noted.
