The scutellum is the modified single cotyledons in monocots.

At first during germination, it provides food for the seedling. When all the food is used up, the scutellum becomes a linking-tube or "nutrient conduit" between the embryo and the endosperm, which is the 2dn food storage structure in the seed.
