Craticula,-ae (s.f.I): a genus of Diatoms; (in Diatoms) craticula, a type of modified, polymorphic valve, together with heribaudii valves in the genus Craticula. Craticular valves possess a central rib with plates that extend transapically across the valve, but the ribs lack a consistent definite shape or pattern. Craticula valves lack a raphe system. Heribaudii valves have radial, punctate striae that appear to retain an equal distance between striae. Unlike the craticula valves, heribaudii valves possess a simple raphe system similar to vegetative valves.” from description of Craticula cuspidata [> Fuelling, L., and LaLiberte, G. (2011). Craticula cuspidata. In Diatoms of the United States. Retrieved August 19, 2016, from http://westerndiatoms.colorado.edu/taxa/species/craticula_cuspidata]]

[> L. craticula,-ae (s.f.I): fine hurdle-work; hence a small gridiron” > cratis,-is (s.f.III), acc. sg. cratim, abl. sg. crate: wicker-work; a hurdle (Lewis & Short); see trellis; see grid.

 

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