Undergrove

noun; compounding
An area of undergrowth in a forested ecosystem.
 
The user may have mistakenly used this word instead of undergrowth. The meaning of growth is something that has grown, and grove refers to a group of trees. The setting in this context was an open forest with some bushes below, and that understory my lab partner referred to as an undergrove.
Etymology : Compounding of the roots under + grove.
