A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
dolabriformis,-e (adj.B): dolabriform, i.e. in shape somewhat resembling an axe or hatchet [> L. dolabra,-ae (s.f.I), a pick-axe, mattock]; sometimes in reference to the shape of a structure with wings (alae); - carpella matura perplurima, in receptáculo elevato in globum congesta, orbicularia securidiformia v. dolabriformia, valde compressa, ambitu costata v. alata, alis integris dentatis v. in processus productis, faciebus ecostatis v. costatis (B&H), mature carpels very many, congested on an elevated receptacle into a globe, orbicular, [axe-shaped] or [hatchet-shaped] strongly compressed, in the circumference costate or winged, with the wings entire, dentate or extended into processes, with the faces lacking costae or costate. - carpella rudimentaria ad 12, dolabriformia, compressa.(B&H), carpels rudimentary, to 12, axe-shaped, compressed. - Anona DOLABRIPETALA ... foliis oblongo-lanceolatis inferne petiolisque hirsutis, petalis 3 connatis lateraliter compresso-dolabriformibus (DeCandolle), with the leaves oblong-lanceolate and with the petioles hirsute below, with the petals 3-connate, laterally compressed-dolabriform. - Columna elongata, incurva, basi in pedem brevem producta, semiteres v. anguste 2-alata, ad latera rostelli utrinque ala quadrangulari v. dolabriformi instructa (B&H) (Orchidaceae), column elongate, incurved, at the base extended into a short foot, somewhat round or narrowly 2-winged, provided on both sides of the rostellum with a quadrangular or dolabriform wing. NOTE: dolabrate is “axe, or axe-shaped,” according to Jackson, whereas dolabriform is “hatchet-shaped;” Stearn (1996) renders them synonymous. Hypericum dolabriforme “shaped like an axe”.

 

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