Pergameneous (sometimes pergamenous, from Latin: pergamena, parchment), is a technical term used to describe anything of the texture of parchment, as in a zoological description of the wing-covers of insects. The original Latin word owes its origin to Pergamon, a Greek city in modern Turkey that was an ancient source of parchment.
