A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
agglutinatus,-a,-um (part.A), also adglutinatus,-a,-um (part.A): glued to, adhering as if glued together; “glued together; as grains of polen in Asclepiads and Orchids” (Lindley) [> L. agglutino,-avi,-atum 1. to glue, paste, cement to something; to fasten to]; cf. conglutinatus, ‘glued together;’

- sporis liquore viscoso agglutinatis, with the spores glued together by a viscous fluid.

- styli 3, inaequilongi, primum agglutinati, demum soluti (B&H), styles 3, of unequal lengths, at first adhering then set free.

- stamina 5, nonnulla sospe ananthera, libera v. inter se et cum corolla agglutinata (B&H), stamens 5, some often lacking anthers, free or between themselves and with the corolla glued together.

- stamina 5, omnia perfecta v. 1-3 ananthera, tubo corolla; agglutinata (B&H), stamens 5, all together perfect or 1-3 without anthers, glued to the tube of the corolla.

- stamina 5 (rarius 4-8), cum petalis agglutinata, rarius libera (B&H), the stamens 5 (more rarely 4-8), agglutinated with the petals, more rarely free.

- [Polytrichum undulatum; moss] EPIPHRAGMA membranula tenuis plicatilis imperforata, apici dentium adglutinata constituit (Hedw.), the epiphragm constitutes a thin, foldable, unperforated little membrane, attached at the apex of the teeth.

- [Polytrichum nanum] EPIPHRAGMA membranula tenerrima albicans constituit, dentium apicibus adglutinatum (Hedw.), the epiphragm constitutes a very delicate little membrane, whitish, adhering together at the apices of the teeth.

-[moss] apice sunt vel liberi, ut in tota fere hac familià, vel cohaerentes, in Koelreutera hygrometrica, vel membrana tenuissimà super orificium, quod exacte claudit pròténsa, quamque recentiores epiphragma dixerunt agglutinati et apprehensi, ut in Polytrichis omnibus (Brid.), at the apex they [i.e. the teeth] are either free, as in nearly this whole family, or cohering [i.e. being connected or in contact] in Koelreutera [i.e. Funaria] hygrometrica, or with an extremely delicate membrane over the orifice, which, stretched out, it completely closes, and which more recent [i.e. modern] authors have called an epiphragm, [the teeth] having been agglutinated [i.e. brought together] and attached, as in all the Polytrichum species.

agglutinate (Eng. Verb) to cause to adhere, unite, fasten; to combine (words) into a compound; attach (a linguistic form) to a base as an affix; to unite or combine into a group or mass; to form words by agglutination.

 

A work in progress, presently with preliminary A through R, and S, and with S (in part) through Z essentially completed.
