- (moss) peristomii dentes dorso membrana cancellata praediti (Mueller), the teeth of the peristome on the back provided with a cancellate membrane.

- [Cinclidium] A kinklis [in Latin] cancelli, ob peristomii interni foramina ductum (Mueller), from kinklis ‘cancelli’, derived from kinklis [in Latin] cancelli, because of the aperatures of the inner peristome.

- semina minuta, obovoidea, testa crustacea pallida grosse cancellata subrugosa (B&H), the seeds minute, obovoid, with the test crustaceous, pale, coarsely reticulate, nearly rugose.

- semina parva, subglobosa, testa brunnea profunde cancellata (B&H), the seeds small, nearly globose, with the test brown, deeply reticulate.

- caryopsidibus pallidis rotundis lenticulari-compressis marginatis subtilissime cancellatis stipite pluries longioribus (F. Mueller), with the caryopses pale, round, lenticular-compressed, bordered, very finely reticulate, many times longer than the stipe.

- [sea shell] umbones versus minutissime pertuso-cancellatis, “very minutely cancellated in a pricked manner near the umbones.”

carioso-cancellatus,-a,-um (adj.A): “used of Lichens becoming latticed by decay” (Jackson).

NOTE: cancellate: “composed of veins only; all the parenchyma or intervening web being absent” (Lindley).

Nothotalisia cancellata, 'describes the reticulate wrinkling of the fruit.'

 

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