Slice ovuliferous scale below, also grow a diaphragm called bracts or bracts. Ovuliferous scale in seed formation. Rapid hypertrophy and lignification, cover the bracts, Brown called fruit scales (persistent or fall), and some ovuliferous scale bracts are separated, some semi separation, others completely healed.
