The peripheral cell is enriched in plasma, 5. Developing glandular hair, consisting of a basal cell, the stalk cell and the mother cell of the head, 6,7. Subsequent anticline divisions of the head mother cell. Twelve cells develop: four are central and eight are grouped together in a peripheral ring. 8,9.
