A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
amussim (adv.), ad amussin (adv. phrase): according to rule, according to a ruler or level; precisely, exactly, accurately; with precision, done very exactly, carefully, with care [> L. amussis,-is (s.f.III), acc. sg. amussim, a rule or level used by carpenters, masons etc.; cf. norma,-ae (s.f.I), abl. sg. norma: a carpenter's square for measuring right angles]; = examussim (adv.): according to a rule, exactly, quite; see strictly; see accurately;

Often used with the verb conveniens,-entis (part.B), q.v., + dat. or cum + abl.): agreeing with, corresponding to, coincide with, harmonious with [> L. convenio,-4];

- ad amussin (adv. phrase), exactly.

- cum exemplaribus Europaeis ad amussim convenit, with European specimens it agrees precisely; cf. exsiccata, herbarium (Stearn).

- [fungi] Fig. 1. Sphaeria Pini: (a) mole nativa; aucta (b); a latere (c) (d) desuper conspecta — (e) horizontaliter (f) verticaliter ad amussim scissa (S&A), Figure 1. Sphaeria Pini: a. native body; magnified b; from the side c.; [and] d.; observed from above - e.; horizontally f.; vertically accurately [i.e. carefully; in a straight line] divided.

- [fungi] Fig. 4. Peziza rhizopus: (a) caespes situm et staturam naturalem servans; (b) aliquantum auctus, specimenque unum ad amussim sectum; (a) preserving the clump position and natural stature [i.e. size]; (b) somewhat enlarged, and one specimen carefully [i.e. in a straight line] sectioned.

- ad amussim congruit cum notis Brunonianis excepta sectione de staminum insertionem (F. Mueller), it agees precisely with the Brunonian characters with the section [i.e. part] excepted regarding the insertion of the stamens.

- specimina austro-occidentalia non habui, sed descriptio Neesiana ad amussim congruit (F. Mueller), I do not have south-western specimens, but the Neesian description agrees exactly.

- A Scaevola thesioide, quantum unicum specimen nostri herbarii ostendit, hirsutie, foliis latioribus nec carnulentis nec denticulatis jam ad amussim distincta (F. Mueller), from Scaevola thesioides certainly quite distinct, as much as [i.e. as far as] one specimen of our herbarium shows, by the hair covering, the leaves wider, being neither like flesh [i.e. succulent], nor denticulate.

- quae differt seminibus uniseriatis, flore et siliqua ad amussim cum Nasturtio congruit (B&H), from which it differs by the seeds in one series, it agrees accurately by the flower and silique with Nasturtium.

- quae quoad folia inflorescentiam et sepalorum petalorumque reliquias cum Novo-Granatensibus ad amussim conveniunt(B&H), to which they correspond as far as the leaves, the inflorescence and the remnants of the sepals and petals exactly with Novo-Granatensis.

 

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