canaliculatus,-a,-um (adj.A): canaliculate, channeled, “like the petioles of many leaves” (Lindley); channeled, i.e. with a longitudinal groove or concave channel, as in the adaxial surface of the costa of some mosses where there is a break in the covering quadrate cells, or referring to a lengthwise broadly curved or concave leaf, as opposed, for example, to a keeled leaf; “channeled (lengthwise); as in [moss] leaves or thalli” (Magill 1990); referring to a single concave channel or groove; longitudinally concave;

- folia marginibus exsiccatione incurvis tantum canaliculars (F. Mueller), leaves with the margins, upon exsiccation, incurved, [the leaves] barely canaliculate.

- legumina polysperma, fere recta, ad suturas canaliculata, indehiscentia, (F. Mueller), the legumes many-seeded, almost straight, at the base and apex nearly acute, canaliculate on the sutures, indehiscent [i.e. opening irregularly].

- foliis planis vel subcanaliculatis (F. Mueller), with the leaves flat or somewhat canaliculate, the lower narrowly oblong, the upper linear.

- stylus filiformis, parte superiore in anthera canaliculata reconditus (Swartz), the style filiform, with the upper part hidden in the channeled anther.

- petioli longitudine foliorum longiores, supra canaliculati (Swartz), the petioles longer than the length of the leaves, grooved above.

- (mosses) foliis congestis paucis lanceolato-subulatis canaliculatis incurvis (Mueller), with the leaves congested, few, lanceolate-subulate, canaliculare incurved.

- (mosses) folia oblongo-lanceolata angusta canaliculate-concava (Mueller), leaves oblong-lanceolate, narrow, channeled-concave.

- (fungi) sphaerularum ostiola recta tenuia teretia subtilissime intus canaliculata, at versus apicein clavata (S&A), the osteoles of the sphaerules straight, thin, terete, most finely channeled inside.

- (fungi) ostiola in stromate latentia teretia, intus cava canaliculata, ac ita in porum exeuntia (S&A), the ostioles lying hidden in the stroma, terete, inside hollow, channeled, and so going out into a pore.

- pinnulae pinnaeque juniores interiore latere subcanaliculato laeves, exteriore autem singula série gibborum subcontigue cristatae (Agardh), the pinnules and younger pinnae smooth on the inner somwhat channelled side, on the outer, however, almost contiguously crested with a single row of swellings [humps].

- frons plana sed leviter canaliculata, simplex aut ramosa (Agardh), the frond flat or lightly channelled.

 

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