A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
Brachium,-ii (s.n.II), abl. sg. brachio; see arm; see branch;

1. arm, often translated as ‘branch’ especially as appendages to the column or the stigma in Orchidaceae;

2. distance from arm-pit to tip of middle finger, hence 2 ft (65 cm.); “an ell, or two feet [24 inches]” (Lindley); see measurements;

- brachiis rostelli latioribus, with the arms of the rostellum wider.

- sylus in 2 brachia stigmatica 12-16 mm longa divisus, style divided into two stigmatic arms 12-16 mm long.

- columna brevis, brachiis 2 longiusculis instructa (B&H), the column short, provided with 2 rather long arms.

- columna apice brachiis 2 linearibus erectis rostello aequilongis instructa (B&H), the column at the apex provided with 2 linear, erect arms the same length as the rostellum.

- stigma sub rostello crassissimo carnoso brachiis 2 linearibus erectis appendiculatum (B&H), the stigma below the very thick, fleshy rostellum appendiculate with 2 linear erect arms.

- columna lobis lateralibus v. brachiis plus minus distinctis (B&H), the column with lateral lobes or with arms more or less distinct.

- columna erecta, semiteres, subalata, apoda, apice utrinque in acumen seu brachium erectum producta (B&H), the column erect, somewhat round, somewhat winged, stalkless, at the apex on both sides prolonged into an acumen or erect arm.

 

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