- Separated into spaces or divisions, as by cancelli.
- In anatomy, same as in zoölogy, but especially said of the light spongy or porous texture of bone resulting from numerous thin osseous laminæ with intervening spaces large enough to be readily seen by the naked eye. Such texture occurs in the ends of long bones, as the humerus and femur, and in the interior of most short, fiat, or irregular bones. The spaces are chiefly vascular channels, filled with connective tissue, fat, etc., between plates or layers of more compact bone-tissue.
- In botany, applied to leaves consisting entirely of veins, without connecting parenchyma, so that the whole leaf looks like a sheet of open network; in mosses, applied to cell-structure having such appearance.
- Also cancellous.

Latticed: = cancellate; q.v. Latus: the side: broad.
Shell compressed triangular; whorls eight, the first nuclear, the next three cancellate and showing little or no trace of varices, which show themselves on the next (fifth) distinctly for the first time, suture deep, caused by the great convexity of the whorls.
Shell short, broad robust, sides curved; spire about equal to the mouth; upper whorls nearly flat on the side; suture bordered by a slightly thickened margin; surface marked by a few large rounded revolving lines crossed by irregular lines of growth, so as to produce a semi-cancellate appearance.
The short, thick form and rudely cancellate surface sufficiently distinguish this Yveve shell.
