A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
Cirrulus,-i (s.m.II), abl. sg. cirrulo; also cirrhulus,-i (s.m.II), abl. sg. cirrhulo: a small cirrus; a small whiplike extension, a small tendril, a small curl or ringlet; perhaps also (as cirrus) “a curl-like tuft; a tendril-like mass or ‘spore horn’ of forced-out [i.e. exuded] spores” (Ainsworth & Bisby);

- [fungus] et in hac quoque specie globulum (Stilbi capitulum mentientem) cirrhulumve e mucilagine durefacta flavidulum apice saepe gestantia (S&A), and also in this species often carrying a globe (resembling the capitulum of Stilbum) or a cirrhulus [i.e. small tendril] from indurated mucilage, somewhat yellow at the apex.

- [fungus] ostiolum globulo cirrhulove spermatico nigro demum deciduo paullo post coronatum (S&A), the ostiole crowned with a generative, black globule or cirrhulus [i.e. a small tendril] ultimately somewhat afterward deciduous.

- [fungus] conspersa est sphaerulis exiguis globoso -depressis nigris , sed in vertice (quem haud raro cirrhulo e mucilagine rigefacta albo - flavente coronatum conspeximus) minus magisve pallentibus , dein collapsis ; intus albido – farctis (S&A), scattered with weak, globose-depressed, black sphaerules, but at the apex (which we noticed not rarely crowned with a tendril of rigidified, white-yellow mucilage) more or less palle, ultimately collapsed; inside whitish-stuffed [i.e. with a whitish filling].

- [fungus] cirrhulos nempe sphaerula sua triplo vel quadruplo longiores (S&A), indeed the cirrhuli three or four times longer than its own sphaerule.

 

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