- n. A kind of seaweed, the devil's-apron, Laminaria digitata.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
At its base, where the tide rarely falls, we find two varieties of _Lobularia digitata_, dead man's hand, the orange colored and the pale, with a species of sertularia; and the characteristic vegetable is the rough-stemmed tangle, or cuvy.
There is such a sensation when there is a cuvy role model.
