A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
Androclinium,-ii (s.n.II), abl. sg. androclinio: “the bed of the anther in Orchids, an excavation on the top of the column, usualy written clinandrium” (Jackson) = clinandrium,-ii (s.n.II), abl. sg. clinandrio, q.v. [> Gk. andro-, man + klinE, a bed];

- [Orchideae] Clinandrium (androclinium, auct. nonnull.) interdum vix prominens, saepe plus minus elevatum, membranaceum et cum alis columnae continuum verisimiliter marginem liberum indicat filamentorum 3 superiorum stylo adnatorum (B&H), the clinandrium (the androclinium or some authors) sometimes is scarcely projecting [i.e. obvious], often somewhat elevated, membranaceous and, continuous with the wings of the column, probably it indicates the margin of the upper 3 adnate filaments free [i.e. distinct] from the style.

Clinandrium, q.v., the part of an orchid column in which is concealed the anther; “the bed of the anther, of Orchids: an excavation of the top of the column, in or on which the anther lies” (Lindley).

 

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