"Lupinus Lepidus"

Abbreviation: LULE

Seed sample from: 2011

Average Measurement: 2.7 x 1.8 x 1.3

Measurement Range: L: 2 - 3, W: 1.5 - 2, D: 1 - 1.5


Color: Seeds ranging in color from off-white, tan, brown, to gray. Lots of variation in color. Patterned with mottled speckling which is light to dense. Speckles light brown to dark brown.

Longitudinal Cross Section: elliptical LULE-long-crosssection.png

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.
