A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
certe (adv.): superl. certissime (adv.): (affirming strongly) at any rate, certainly, with certainty, undoubtedly, assuredly, surely, really; of course, in any case, definitely, at least; see truly;

- cotyledones certe accumbentes (B&H), the cotyedones are definitely accumbent.

- species floribus certissime 4-meris, species with the flowers most certainly with four parts.

- genera Maderensia Bowdichii certe falsa et nequáquam recognoscenda (B&H), the Maderensian genera of Bowdich are certainly false and not at all to be recognized.

- de ovulorum numero et insertione nihil certe observavit auctor; nos ipsi plantam non vidimus (B&H), the author observed nothing with certainty regarding the number of the ovules and with the insertion; we ourselves have not seen the plant.

- species 3, Indica;, staminibus oo, quibus forte addentur 2 Americanae, Bocagea alba, petalis certe valvatis, staminibus 6, et Trigyneia ? canescens, staminibus circa 12 (B&H), species 3 of India; with the stamens [numerous] to which perhaps the 2 American ones should be added, Bocagea alba, with the petals definitely valvate, with the stamens 6, and Trigyneia ? canescens, with the stamens around 12.

- PLAGIORHEGMA, species Mantchuriensis, ex habitu et fructu certe Jeffersoniae diphyllae congener videtur (B&H), Plagiorhegma, a species of Mantchuria, from the habit and fruit certainly seems a congener of Jeffersonia diphylla.

- Phoenicaulis, certe est congener C. pygmaei, et cotyledones accumbentes exhibet (B&H),Phoenicaulis certainly is a congener of Cheiranthus pygmaeus, and it displays the accumbent cotyledons.

- Hecatonia palustris sit certe Ranunculi species, hanc certe ad Ranunculum, referendam judico (DeCandolle), Hecatonia palustris may certainly be a species of Ranunculus, certainly I judge that this ought to be restored to Ranunculus.

- affinis N. Albae et cum ea a plurimis autoribus confusa, sed certe diversa (DeCandolle), related to N. Alba and confused with this by many authors, but it is certainly different.

- Aff. D. cucullariae, sed certe differt statura minore, etc. (DeCandolle), related [aff. = affinis] to D. cucullaria, but it certainly differs by the smaller stature [i.e. height].

- Forchammeria certe non hujus Ordinis, ob baccam 2-locularem septo crasso coriaceo, habitu, etc. (DeCandolle), Forchammeria is certainly not of this Order, due to the berry being 2-locular with a thick, leathery septum, by the habit, etc.

 

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