bracteoles - good definition needed

Mon, 01 Oct 2007 07:58:45 PDT
Following this up - the same book has a spathe defined as an "ensheathing
bract" - isn't it this structure the allium books are referring to ? 

>>The term bract - or bracteole isn't used in his treatment of the alliums !
(But is, for instance, in the squills. Alliums have spathes or not in that
reference as far as I can see.)
