A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
axile: axilis,-e (adj.B), positioned on the axis; pertaining to the axis; “of the axis without reference to its morphological nature, as axile placentation” (Jackson); “in the axis; used especially of the placentae in the ovary” (Fernald 1950); (fungi) “(of columella of Gasteromycetes) penetrating the gleba as an axis” (S&D); see axial; see columella,-ae (s.f.I);

- embryo rectus, axilis, radicula ad hilum versa et ideo saepius supera (DeCandolle), the embryo straight, on the axis, with the radicle facing the hilum and for this reason more often above [superior].

- testa coriacea, laevis; "albumen copiosum ; embryo orthotropus, axilis " (matura nobis desunt)(B&H), the seedcoat is leathery, smooth; “the albumen copious; the embryo orthotropous, on the axis” (mature [sc. seeds] absent with us).

NOTE: this adjective refers both to the position on the axis, and the axis itself.
axile placentation: “ovules attached to the central axis of an ovary with two or more locules” (Harris & Harris): placentatio (-onis (s.f.III) axilis, abl. sg. placentatione axili.

 

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