Thanks, both, for your

Thanks, both, for your help.
What's (where's?) a plant's 'sinus'? Sounds as if it ought to be the main / central 'vein'. Is this right?

Sinus is Latin for bay ...

... and in botanical jargon is the gap between two lobes - I hope I am not misapplying it to the gap between the basal lobes of leaves with cordate bases.
