Dear Tony,        Additions to answers you already got
            - Pleuridie / Pleuridien: actually depends on the context. Are 
we talking about plants or animals?

            - saugnapfähnlich:  sucker-like, yes (talking about 
            - eingeschnürrt: eingeschnürt (one r), example nepionic 
constriction (ammonites), I guess the double r is a typo. There is a 
colloquial term "eingeschnurrt" (particip) (without the Umlaut and with 
double r) that would mean something like shrunk (what happens if you wash a 
woolen textil at higher temp., ;-)
            - Ast oder Zweig: branch or twig (tree branches are thicker 
than twigs)
