In the absence of UV-B, both peltate and capitate glands were incompletely developed in both mature and developing leaves, the oil sacs being wrinkled and only partially filled.
The distal row of carpals includes the hamate, capitate , trapezium, and trapezoid, which are closely approximated to the metacarpals.
There is a small fossa on the postorbital's surface at the anteromedial corner of the supratemporal fossa for the laterosphenoid's capitate process.
Gymnasts' wrist injury includes distal radius stress fractures, scaphoid stress fracture, avascular necrosis of the capitate , ulnar carpal abutment, and dorsal impingement.
A description might read, ‘Leaves pubescent with capitate trichomes, or farinose when dry.’
The capitate processes are small and visible through the supratemporal fenestrae dorsally, fitting within fossae in the postorbitals.
The lesion is thought to be caused by attenuation of the ulnar V ligament connecting the capitate with the distal carpal row to the triquetrum of the proximal row.
In a recent study of Lamiaceae secretory structures, Corsi and Bottega identified four different types of capitate trichomes on the leaves of Salvia officinalis, in addition to peltate trichomes.
Avascular necrosis of the capitate bone is a rare clinical entity, and it is usually a sequel to serious trauma.
