A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
alaris,-e (adj.B): alar, like a wing, wing-like, pertaining to the wings; in mosses, applied to the often differentiated cells in the basal corners of leaves; in older botany, belonging to the axil, axillary (Jackson) [> L. ala,-ae (s.f.I), q.v.];

- alar cell: cellula (s.f.I) alaris.

- cellulae alares multae magnae hyalinae auriculis instructae, cells at basal angle of leaf many large hyaline with auricles provided.

- cellulis alaribus 7-9-seriatis hexagonis, with cells at basal angle of leaf 7-9-rowed hexagonal (Stearn).

- alar region: regio,-onis (s.f.III) alaris, abl.sg. regione alari.

- regione alari ab cetera folii distinguibili, with the alar region distinguishable from the other (region) of the leaf.

- flore masculo terminante (Gymnostomum); flore masculo alari (Anictangium [sic]) (Hedwig), with the male flower (i.e. perigonium) terminating (in Gymnostomum); with the male flower axillary (i.e. lateral) (in Anoectangium).

NOTE: axillary perigonia in mosses are presently referred to as lateral (not terminal) perigonia.

NOTE: alaris,-e (adj.B) is an “obsolete term for axillaris,-e (adj.B)” (Lindley); see axillary.

 

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