What[edit]

What is subcutan for

Energy storage, isolation, blood supply for the cutis. JFW | T@lk 02:21, 29 January 2006 (UTC)

Merge[edit]

I don't think they should be merged. I think the term subcutis refers only to vertebrates and such, while hypodermis can refer to plants and arthropods as well as vertebrates. They have different purposes, etc. --TheAlphaWolf 01:05, 15 March 2006 (UTC)

I put back in a merge proposal for Subcutaneous tissue and Hypodermis. If there is a difference, both articles should make that clear. Right now, the hypodermis article says that subcutaneous tissue is synonymous to hypodermis. The subcutaneous tissue article uses a picture with both lemmata used for the same thing. --Abdull (talk) 09:28, 25 August 2008 (UTC)

Article rewrite[edit]

The majority of this article is unreferenced, and the existing references are not great sources. Therefore, I am rewriting the article with citation. I hope I have not stepped on any toes here, and would love some help with the article. I just ask that you cite your sources. Kilbad (talk) 18:02, 17 October 2008 (UTC)
