A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
Clinandrium, the part of an orchid column in which is concealed the anther; “the bed of the anther; of Orchids: an excavation of the top of the column, in or on which the anther lies” (Lindley); “the anther-bed in Orchids, that part of the column in which the anther is concealed” (Jackson): clinandrium,-ii (s.n.II), abl. sg. clinandrio, nom.& acc. pl. clinandria, dat. & abl.pl. clinandriis [> Gk. klinE, a bed + anEr, andros, a man];

NOTE: = androclinium,-ii (s.n.II), abl. sg. androclinio: “the bed of the anther in Orchids, an excavation on the top of the column, usualy written clinandrium” (Jackson);

- clinandrio parum prominulo, truncato vel obliquo, incurvo, with the clinandrium somewhat prominent, truncate or oblique, incurved.

- [Orchideae] clinandrium postice in filamentum productum (B&H), the clinandrium postically prolonged into a filament

- [Orchideae] clinandrium sub rostello reclinato suboccultum (B&H), the clinandrium somewhat hidden under the reclinate [i.e. bent downward so that the apex is below the base] rostellum.

- [Orchideae] clinandrium amplissimum (B&H), the clinandrium very big [i.e. ample or capacious].

- [Orchideae] columna brevis, crassa, pede longo, clinandrio máximo (B&H), the column short, thick, with a long foot, with the largest clinandrium.

- clinandrium breve, margine varie sinuatum vel dentatum, clinandrium short,

with the margine variously sinuate or dentate.

- clinandrium valdo obliquum, postico acuminatum, saepius integrum,

parum prominulum, clinandrium strongly oblique, postically acuminate,

more often entire.

- clinandrium latum, rostello lato brevius (B&H), the clinandrium wide, shorter than the broad rostellum.

- clinandrio alte cucullato, with the clinandrium deeply cucullate.

- [Orchideae] anthera 1, postica, erecta prona v. reflexa, loculis parallelis v. divergentibus distinctis clinandrio adnatis basique saepe in rostello continuis (B&H), anther 1, postical, erect, bent forward or reflexed, with the locules parallel or divergent, distinct [i.e. separate], adnate to the clinandrium and often continuous at the base into a rostellum [i.e. small beak].

- [Orchideae] Clinandrium (androclinium, auct. nonnull.) interdum vix prominens, saepe plus minus elevatum, membranaceum et cum alis columnae continuum verisimiliter marginem liberum indicat filamentorum 3 superiorum stylo adnatorum (B&H), the clinandrium (the androclinium or some authors) sometimes is scarcely projecting [i.e. obvious], often somewhat elevated, membranaceous and, continuous with the wings of the column, it probably indicates the margin of the upper 3 adnate filaments free [i.e. distinct] from the style.

- [Orchideae] anthera perfecta saepius 1, postica (rarius 2 laterales), margini v. intra marginem clinandrii affixa (B&H), the perfect anther more often 1, postical (more rarely 2 lateral), attached on the margin or within the margin of the clinandrium.

Column (Eng. noun): “the combination of stamens and styles into a solid central body; as in Orchids” (Lindley).

 

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