Expert Answer:

Epimorphosis is the regeneration of a part of an organism by extensive cell proliferation and differentiation at the cut surface.

Morphallaxis is the regeneration of a body part by means of structural or cellular reorganization with only limited production of new cells, observed primarily in invertebrate organisms, such as certain lobsters.
