Figure 4.7 Pits. Pits are depressions or cavities in cell walls where the secondary wall does not form. There may be from one or two to several thousand in a cell. They always occur in pairs, with one on each side of the middle lamella. Some, called bordered pits, bulge out from the wall and resemble doughnuts in surface view, while others, called simple pits, do not bulge. (Inset from Sylvia S.
