- ramuli hornotini pilosi, annotini glabri, vetustiores crassi cortice griseo fisso, branchlets of this year's growth pilose, of last year's growth glabrous, the older ones thick with the bark grey fissured (Stearn).

- rhizomate quotannis tuber novum integrum v. palmato-2-3-fidum formante, tubere annotino demum marcescente (B&H), with the rhizome annually forming a new tuber, entire or palmately 2-3-divided, with the year old tuber finally withering.

- tuberibus integris, novello saepe ab annotino fibra longa separato (B&H), with the tubers entire, with the young one separated from the year old tuber by a long fiber.

- paniculae breves, floribundae, ad ramos annotinos v. vetustiores laterales sessiles (B&H), panicles short, full of flowers, on sessile, lateral year old or older branches.

Rami (pl.m.II) annotini (adj.A): branches one year old (Lindley).

Lycopodium annotinum L., Interrupted Clubmoss: ‘A year old; from the clearly marked separation of each year's growth of the ascending branches’ (Fernald 1950); Pohlia annotina (Hedw.) Lindb., a moss, 'The name annotina, seemingly referring to last year's growth, can be traced to Dillenius. Its meaning in terms of the species at hand escapes us. The leaves are not clustered in any way marking annual growth' (C&A).

 

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