Caterva,-ae (s.f.I), abl. sg. caterva: crowd, company, group, usually of men, as men asembled in troops; of animals, ‘flock;’ see group;

- caterva canum, a pack of dogs.

- caterva pecudum, a herd of cows.

- caterva specierum commode dividitur in sectiones sequentes, sed inter has nullum est discrimen bonum, nam flores interdum variant albi et aurei in eadem specie (e.g. in Arcticis et Himalayanis) (B&H); a group of species is properly divided into the following sections, but among these there is no good distinction, for the flowers sometimes vary white and golden in the same species ( e.g. in Arctic and Himalayan [species].

 

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