anastomosans,-antis (part.B), anastomosatus,-a,-um (part.A): anastomosing, united by running together irregularly to form a network, net-like, netted, reticulate; the joining of parts of branched systems, such as the veins of a leaf or streams in a swamp (WIII); “connecting by cross-veins and forming a network” (Fernald 1950); “running together irregularly to give a vein-like network” (Ainsworth & Bisby); occasionally in mosses, refering to the joined and rejoined parts of irregularly and incompletely divided peristome teeth; (mosses) “union of one structure with another; interconnecting; sometimes applied to irregularly divided peristome teeth” (Magill 1990) [> Gk. anastomoO, to provide with a mouth, to open, as to clear out a trench];

- nervis reticulato-anastomosantibus, with nerves reticulately joining together.

- filis reticulatim, stellatim vel moniliformiter anastomosantibus, with filaments reticulately, stellately or moniliformly anastomosing.

- pericarpio fibroso, fibris in vittas latas anastomosantes contextis (B&H), with a fibrous pericarpium, with fibers woven together into broad anastomosing bands.

- folia supra nitida, nervis obliquis parallelis distantibus non prominentibus, prope marginem arcuato-anastomosantibus, leaves above shining, with nerves oblique parallel distant not prominent, near the margin arcuately anastomosing.

- endocarpio soluto intus fasciis 3 - 6 verticalibus ramosis anastomosantibus costato(B&H), with the endocarp free anastomosing inside with 3-6 vertical branched bands, costate.

- membrana hyalina in cilia numerosa filiformia nodosa valde appendiculata vel rugulosa, initio inter se anastomosantia, dein libera, producta (C. Mueller), hyaline membranes extended into numerous filiform, nodose, strongly appendiculate or somewhat wrinkled cilia, from the beginning anastomosing [i.e.reticulately joined] to one another, finally free [i.e. separate].

NOTE: lamellae in fundo venoso-conjunctae, lamellae at the base anasomosing (Stearn).

NOTE: venoso-nervosus,-a,-um (adj.A), or nervoso-venosus,-a,-um (adj.A): “(obsol.) when the principal veins branch and anastomose irregularly” (Lindley)

- folia petiolata, decussata, opposita,, serrata, nervosa venosa (Swartz), leaves petiolate, decussate, opposite, serrate, nervose, venose.

- folia petioiata, alterna, ovata, 5-nervia, nervoso - venosa, tenuiora (Swartz), leaves petiolate, alternate, ovate, 5-nerved, nervose-venose [i.e. with evident nerves], thinner.

 

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