A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
calcaratus,-a,-um (adj.A): spurred; nearly synonymous by some authors (DeCandolle) with corniculatus,-a,-um (adj.A), ‘horned;’ cf. gibbous;

- flores albidi minutissimi non calcarati, flowers whitish very tiny not spurred.

- basi calcarato, with spurred base.

- petalum anticum longe calcaratum, the anterior petal long calcarate.

- nec differt nisi petalo inferiore basi gibbo (a superiore basi plano semper diversum vidimus) nec calcarato. (B&H), nor does it differ except by the lower petal gibbous [i.e. hunch-backed] at the base (it always seems to us different from the upper by the flat base) nor it is calcarate [i.e. spurred].

- sepala fere aequalia; duo inferiora in basin paulo protrudentem nec revera saccatam nec calcaratam breviter coadunata (Mueller), the sepals almost equal; the two lower into the somewhat protruding base neither actually saccate nor spurred, shortly joined together.

- Aquilegia corniculata, flore pleno, petalis calcaratis, calcaribus deorsum productis (DeCandolle), Aquilegia corniculata, with the flower double, with the petals spurred, with the spurs elongated on the back.

- petala 4, 2 exteriora basi aequaliter calcarata aut glbbosa (DeCandolle), petals 4, the outer 2 equally at the base spurred or gibbous.

- petala 4, unicum basi calcaratum. (DeCandolle), petals 4, a single one of them spurred at the base.

ecalcaratus,-a,-um (adj.A): without a spur;

- labellum sessile liberum ecalcaratum paece obcordatum obscure trilobum sepalis paulo brevius (Mueller), the labellum sessile, free, lacking a spur, almost obcordate, obscurely trilobed somewhat shorter than the sepals.

- Aquilegia stellata, flore pleno, petalis planis ecalcaratis coloratis (DeCandolle), Aquilegia stellata, with the flower double, with the petals flat, lacking a spur, colored.

- cucullorum sacco amplo subrotundo obtusissimo ecalcarato (DeCandolle), with the sac of the cuculli [i.e. terminal hoods] nearly round, very obtuse, lacking a spur.

NOTE: calyces basi bi- vel tri-calcarati, the calyces 2- or 3-spurred at the base.

 

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