A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
Bramble, bramble-bush, thorn-bush, generally a rough shrub with prickles, more specifically a shrub of the genus Rubus; blackberry-bush, also the fruit of the blackberry-bush: batus,-i (s.f.I), abl. sg. bato, q.v.; dumus,-i (s.m.II), q.v., abl.sg. dumo, thorn-bush, a bramble; sentis,-is (c.), q.v., abl. sg. sente, nom. & acc. pl. sentes, dat. & abl. pl. sentibus: a thorn-bush, briar, esp. Rosa canina; vepres (vepris, veper)(gen. sg. -is) (s.m.III), abl. sg. vepre; more usual in the plural: vepres, gen. pl. veprium, dat. & abl. pl. vepribus: a thorn-bush, brier-bush, bramble-bush; see briar.

Apparently a raspberry, a shrub with the same kind of fruit of the genus Rubus, is a separate word to generally refer to the red-berried forms of Rubus, although it also includes blackberries (!). Raspberries refer to cultivated forms of Rubus idaeus and perhaps, blackberries refer to the wild plants.
Bramble, a little: veprecula,-ae (s.f.I), abl. sg. veprecula: a little thorn-or brier-bush.
bramble-bush, thorn-bush, of or belonging to a: vepraticus,-a,-um (adj.A);

- spinae vepraticae, spines like those of a thorn-bush.

 

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