There is only a semantics difference. "Reticulum" is a connective mesh holding together some organs components such as liver, spleen, lymph nodes and bone marrow. In the German literature is called "glitterfassern" and many silver stains, such as Gomori, are specific for it.
"Reticulin" is used either to refer to the "holding mesh" or to the stain, especially when dealing with bone marrow specimens.

Oh Great Histonet, how do you describe the difference, if any, between the terms "reticulum" and "reticulin."
