A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
Arillode, “a false aril; a coating of the seed proceeding from its own surface, and not from the placenta” (Lindley); a false aril, a coat of the seed, and not arising from the placenta (Jackson): arillodium,-ii (s.n.II), abl. sg. arillodio, nom.& acc.pl. arillodia, dat.& abl.pl. arillodiis; see aril; see caruncle, strophiole;

- semen globulare vel ellipsoideum, arillodio vel sarcotesta carens, testa ossea, hilo lineari, seed globular or ellipsoid, lacking an arillode or sarcotesta, with the testa bony, with the hilum linear.

- semina crassa, saepe arillata v. strophiolo (arillodio) fulta (B&H), the seeds thick, often supported by an aril or strophiole (arillodium).

- semina in loculis saepius 2, péndula, arillodio (arillo?) cristato plicato involuta, raphe dorsali (B&H), the seeds in the locules more often 2, pendulous, enveloped by a crested, plicate [i.e. pleated] arillodium (perhaps an aril?), with the raphe dorsal.

- semina (a nobis non visa) arillo seu arillodio plus minus involuta (B&H), seeds (by us not seen) more or less enveloped by an aril or arillodium.

- semina in perpluribus erecta v. adscendentia, saepe arillo (rectius arillodio) aucta, interdum alata (B&H), the seeds, in very many [sc. species] erect or ascending, increased often by an aril (more correctly by an arillodium), sometimes winged.

- semina arillata, arillodio (ex Planch.) lobulato, seminis apicem cucullante inferné cum arillo confluente (B&H), seeds with arils, with a lobulate (according to Planchon) arillodium, [the arillodium] hooding [i.e. providing with a hood] the apex of the seed, confluent [i.e. merging] below with the aril.

- Tovomitropsis, species Brasiliensis quam sub Tovomita depinxerunt, additis 5 ex America centrali v. Nova Granada, ab auctoribus citatis generice a Chrysochlamyde distinguitur imprimis arillo a foramine nec a funiculo oriundo, qui idcirco arillodium nec arillus dicitur. Nos tamen in Chrysochlamyde arilli basin vidimus cum endocarpio et hilo seminis tam arcte concretum ut funiculus nullus apparet, et arillus ex ambitu cicatricis endocarpii v. seminis oriri videatur (B&H), Tovomitropsis, a Brasilian species which they illustrated under Tovomita, with five added from central America or Nova Granada [i.e. Colombia], is distinguished generically, by the authors cited, from Chrysochlamys principally by the aril arisen from a foramen [i.e. an aperture], not a funiculus, which is called for that reason an arillodium, not an aril. We [however] in Chrysochlamys considered the base of the aril with the endocarp and hilum of the seed so closely jointed together that no funiculus is apparent, and the aril is seen to arise from the periphery of the cicatrix [i.e. scar] of the endocarp or of the seed.

 

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