(in algae) “the uncalcified joint between segments of coralline algae” (see also geniculum; see articulus,-i (s.m.II);

- [Hypecoum] capsula siliquaeformis, transverse nodosa seu articulata. Semina inter articulationes solitaria (DeCandolle), the capsule like a silique, transversly nodose or articulated. The seeds between the articulations solitary.

- articulus inferior pedicelliformis; superior globosus (B&H), the lower articulation (member, joint) pedicelliform, the upper globose.

Disarticulatio,-onis (s.f.III), abl. sg. disarticulatione: deterioration into joints or segments.

Geniculum,-i (s.n.II), abl. sg. geniculo: in geniculate algae, the flexible non-calcified point or points on the alga frond, or tree-like alga branches, that serve as ‘knees’ or ‘hinges’ between the calcified intergenicula; “an uncalcified joint or articulation between the calcified segments of a jointed coralline alga;”

Intergeniculum,-i (s.n.II), abl. sg. intergeniculo: (in geniculate algae) the calcified spaces on the alga frond, or tree-like alga branches, between the flexible non-calcified genicula (’knees’ or’hinges’); “a calcified segment between the uncalcified joints of a coralline alga;” see articulation; see geniculum,-i (s.n.II).

 

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