They both are lining of muscles so how can we differentiate these two? Please answer in simple terms.

  • $\begingroup$ What's an endomyceus? When I search google it says 'endomysium'. Am I still new in the field or is the spelling wrong? $\endgroup$ – another 'Homo sapien' Aug 28 '16 at 10:24
  • $\begingroup$ Sorry,it is endomysium $\endgroup$ – Komu tripathi Aug 28 '16 at 13:49
  • $\begingroup$ If you try "endomysium" in Google, the very first result (wikipedia) is very clear: endomysium is a layer of connective tissue that surrounds the muscle cell, whose membrane is called sarcolemma. $\endgroup$ – user24284 Aug 28 '16 at 14:25

enter image description here

Check this other image too from google. A single muscle cell or fibre has been magnified to show the sarcolemma and other contents like eccentric/peripheral nuclei as well as sarcoplasm. It's not the best image but hope this is ok.

Please do not create a new answer unless it is substantially different from the first. Finally, you must cite/link to the sources of all images you use in answers (and questions). It helps to provide context, may give additional sources of information, and is just scientific common sense - you always cite your sources. $\endgroup$ – MattDMo Aug 29 '16 at 23:27

Structure of a skeletal muscle

Just to illustrate Gerardo's answer, this picture is provided. The endomysium as you see is a layer of connective tissue which surrounds the individual muscle fibres (cells) (in between one muscle cell and the next) but each muscle cell in particular is lined or covered by a plasma membrane called the sarcolemma.
