A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
Connective, “something that connects; the tissue connecting the pollen sacs of an anther” (WIII); the part of the stamen connecting the two pollen sacs of an anther and which is usually distinct from the filament; (in algae) the girdle; “the part which intervenes between the two lobes of an anther and holds them together; it is subject to great diversity of form. It appears to be analogous to the midrib of a leaf, and is only absent when an anther is strictly one-celled; that is to say, when the whole of the interior of the end of the stamen is converted into pollen” (Lindley); “the portion of a stamen which connects the two locules of the anther” (Fernald 1950): connectivum,-i (s.n.II), abl. sg. connectivo, nom. & acc. pl. connectiva, dat. & abl. pl. connectivis [> L. connectus, q.v., connected, united + -ivus,-a,-um (adj.A) ‘capacity’]; see anther; see stamen; see girdle;

[algae] “the girdle” (Lindley); see girdle;

[fungi] “same as ‘disjunctor’” (S&D).

- frustulum in facie connectivali visum constrictum, frustule in girdle view constricted.

- antherarum connectivum crassum glabrum vel dorso barbatum, of the anthers the connective thick glabrous or on the back bearded.

- antheris connectivo excurrente rostellatis, (F. Mueller), with the anthers rostellate, with the connective excurrent.

- antherae connectivo crasso glabro vel dorso barbato, anthers with the connective thick glabrous or on the back bearded.

- antherae introrsae, loculis longitudinaliter dehiscentibus intus contiguis dorso connectivo lato sejunctis, anthers introrse, with the loculi (anthercells) longitudinally dehiscing on the inside touching on the back by a broad connective separated.

- connectivum lineari-filiforme postice ascendens, loculum perfectum (i.e. fertilem) ferens, antice dejectum vel porrectum loculum cassum (i.e. sterilem) rarius perfectum ferens vel nudum acutum, connective linear-filiform, at the front ascending a perfect (i.e.fertile) loculus carrying, at the back descending or straight a loculus empty (i.e. sterile) more rarely perfect carrying or naked acute.

- connectivum supra antheram dilatatum, connective above anther enlarged.

- connectivum ultra loculos productum, connective beyond the loculi continued (Stearn).

- antherae innatae, connectivo cum filamento continuo (B&H), the anthers innate [i.e. borne at the apex of the supporting part], the connective continuous with the filament.

- connectivum nunc mucronatum v. in aristam setaceam productum, nunc muticum. (B&H), the connective sometimes mucronate or extended into a setaceous arista, sometimes muticous.

antheralis,-e (adj.B): of or pertaining to the anther;

- connectivum (s.n.II) antherale, abl. sg. connectivo antherali, the antheral connective.

didymus,-a,-um (adj.): didymous, in pairs, divided into two lobes; in Palms, of anthers where the connective is almost absent.

Disjunctor,-oris (s.m.III), abl. sg. disjunctore: (fungi) disjunctor; a disjointer or connective cell or portion of the cell wall, which binds together two conidia of a chain; a cellulose connection between conidia (Woronin)” (S&D).
