Squamous is the term I think of myself. Outside of being used as a medical term, H. P. Lovecraft is about the only 20th century fiction author to use the word. Cthulhu Chick has a list of favorite HPL words and their frequency in his writing. Squamous falls in at only being used once, but oh so memorable.http://cthulhuchick.com/wordcount-lovecraft-favorite-words/
