inner lamella
(Class Ostracoda):
Inner layer of epidermis and cuticle of the dorsal body fold forming the valve, entirely uncalcified or calcified only around the free margin [Cohen, Peterson, and Maddocks, in press].
(Class Ostracoda):
Relatively thin, lamella-like structure joined to outer wall (outer lamella) of valve. Secreted by epidermis; covers body except dorsally in hinge region. Junction with outer lamella along valve margin may be thickened to form duplicature. (membranous, calcareous) [Stachowitsch, 1992].
