A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
Configuration: a shape or shaping, the figure, the external form, form; “relative disposition or arrangement of parts; interrelationships of constituent elements, pattern, figure, gestalt; syn. form” (WIII): configuratio,-onis (s.f.III), abl.sg. configuratione [> L. configurare, to mold, shape]; see appearance; see habit;

- forma pilei, habitu pileipellis, dimensionibus basidiosporae et fibulis nullis similis, sed stipite magis breviore atque cheilocystidiis copiosis differt; it differs by the shape of the pileus, the configuration of the pileipellis, by the dimensions of the basidiospores and clamp connections none.

- [Ricciella; hepaticae] optime distincta frondis configuratione, in sectione transversa quasi avem volantem simulante (Steph.), best distinguished by the shape of the frond, in the transverse section representing as if a flying bird.

- configuration colesulae est vera Nardia, sed habitum, fragilitatem, formam, marginem hyalinum, imbricationem densissimam etc. folii, ramificationem caulis et stolones, bracteas perichaetiales, ut in proxima Cesia corallioidi, quacum fere semper confusa, possidet (Lindb.), the external form of the colesule is true Nardia, but it possesses the appearance, fragility, shape, hyaline margine, the very dense imbrication etc. of the leaf, the branching of the stem and the stolones, the perichaetial bracts as they are in the [taxonomically] very close Cesia corallioidi, with which it is almost always confused.

 

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