  • according to Hottinger (2006):

SIX - STOLON SYSTEM - the manner in which each equatorial ogival or spatulate chamberlet of a main chamberlet layer is connected to its adjacent chamberlets, in the same cycle by annular passages and to the neighbouring two chamberlets in the following and in the previous cycle by crosswise oblique stolons. The pattern may be duplicated or multiplied in successive stolon planes parallel to the equatorial plane.
