Dentaria,-ae (s.f.I), Toothwort, from L. “dens, a tooth, presumably from the toothed rhizomes of some species” (Fernald 1950); “ in allusion to the toothlike scales on the rhizome which led to the supposition that it might be good for toothache” (Stearn 1996); Fissidens,-entis (s.m.III) Hedw., referring to the divided peristome teeth.

Trident: tridens, tridentis (s.m.III), abl. sg. tridente.

NOTE: the ending -dens, gen. sg. dentis is also the present active participle ending: ascendens, rising; scandens, climbing.

 

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