A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
Coccidium,-ii (s.n.III), abl. sg. coccidio: a cystocarpium, “a case including a great many spores in Algals” (Lindley); (obsol.) = cystocarp” (Jackson), which is “a sporophore in Algae, especially in Florideae, a cyst containing sexually produced spores” (Jackson); see note under pericarp; see ‘capsular fruit (algae);’ [> Gk. dim. of kokkos, berry + -idion]; see cystocarpium,-ii (s.n.II) [> Gk. kokkos, berry + Gk. dim. suffix -idion];

- [algae] coccidia in ramulis omnino immersa sunt (Agardh), the coccidia are everywhere immersed in the branches.

- [algae] fructus Gracilariae sunt Coccidia, Gigartince Favellidia (attamen intra pericarpium inclusa) (Agardh), the fruits of the Gracilariae are coccidia, of the Gigartinae are favellidia (at least [those] enclosed within the pericarpium.

- [algae] TRIBUS V. SPHAEROCOCCOIDEAE. Frond cellulosa continua. Coccidia externa [i.e. not immersed]. Sphaerosporae sparsae inclusae [Agardh) Tribe V. Sphaerococcoideae. Fronds cellulose, continuous [i.e. not fibrous, areolate or articulate]. Coccidia external. Sphaerospores sparse, included.

- [algae] TRIBUS VI. DELESSERIEAE. Frons cellulosa continua [i.e. not fibrous, areolate or articulate]. Coccidia externa [i.e. not immersed]. Sphaerosporae in soris definitis aut sporophyllis propriis collectae (Agardh), Tribe VI. Delesserieae. Frond cellulose, continuous. Coccidia external. Sphaerospores gathered together [i.e. collected] into well-marked sori or characteristic sporophyls.

- [algae] Fructus duplex: Coccidia ad frondem externa, intra pericarpium cellulosum denique apertum, sporas obovatas in articulis filorum moniliformium e placenta centrali egredientium formatas, in glomerulum congestas, generantia (Agardh), fruit [double]: coccinia external on the frond, within the cellulose pericarpium,[which is] ultimately opened, generating obovate spores in the articuli of moniliform filaments issuing forth from a central placenta, crowded together into glomerules [i.e. small balls].

- [algae] in Sphaerococcoideis et Delesserieis est fructus capsularis subsphaericus (aut hemisphaericus) et intra pericarpium cellulosum, distentione vel dilaceratione denique apertum, sporas oblongas ' in glomerulum arcte congestas e placenta centrali egredientes fovens; capsulas has Coccidia nominavi (Agardh), in Sphaerococcoideae and Delesserieae there is a nearly spheric (or hemispheric) capsular fruit, and within the cellulose pericarp, with distension or being torn apart, finally opened, enclosing oblong spores tightly congested into a glomerule issuing from the central placenta; I am calling these capsules Coccidia.

- [algae] sporae Coccidiorum ex endochromate cellularum, in fila clavato-articulata a placenta singula centrali egredientia coordinatarum, formantur; origo itaque Favellideis subsimilis, at placenta Coccidiorum normaliter singula et in fructu maturo adhuc detegenda (Agardh), the spores of the Coccidia are formed from the endochrome [i.e. colored cell content] of cells, co-ordered [i.e. coordinated] into club-shaped, jointed filamens issuing forth from a single, central placenta; and thus the origin is somewhat similar to a Favellidean [origin], but the placenta of the coccidia is normally single, and in the mature fruit thus far to be observed.

 

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