- paraphysibus brevibus articulatis copiosis, with paraphyses short articulated abundant (Stearn).

- flores cum spadice articulati v. continui (B&H), flowers articulated with the spadix or continuous.

- siliquae parvae, cum pedicello nunc incrassato articulatae(B&H), silicles small, articulated with the sometimes thickened pedicel.

- in aspectu fructuum articulatorum Desmodiorum spp., with the appearance of the articulated fruits of Desmodium species.

- frons tota filis articulatis constituta, the frond entirely constituted of jointed filaments.

- segmentis moniliformiter articulatis, with the segments moniliformly articulated.

- lomentum 4-5-articulatum, the loment 4-5-jointed.

- siliqua transverse bi-articulata, brevis v. elongata; articulus inferior indehiscens, aspermus, v. longitudinaliter 2-locularis, 2-valvis, 2-oo-spermus; superior indehiscens (B&H), silique transversely bi-articulate [i.e. with two joints, with two members], short or elongate, the lower articulation indehiscent, lacking seed, or longitudinally 2-loculat, 2-indeterminate-seeded, the upper indehiscent.

- stylus articulatus ovario, the style articulated with the ovary [abl. case].

articulato-constrictus,-a,-um (part.A): constricted as if into joints or segments.

filamentis fructiferis articulato-moniliformibus, with the fruiting filaments articulate-monifilorm [(i.e. contracted as if beaded].

disarticulatus,-a,-um (part.A): disarticulated, deteriorating into joints or segments.

inarticulatus,-a,-um (part.A): without divisions, joints, segments or articulations; in bryophytes “not in distinct even tiers; e.g. epidermal cells of setae; not jointed, without thickened nodes, opp. articulatus,-a,-um (part.A)” (Magill 1990);

- siliqua brevis (rariss. elongata), indehiscens, inarticulata (B&H), the silicle short (very rarely elongate), indehiscent, not jointed.
