Endocarpus,-i (s.m.II), abl. sg. endocarpo, nom.pl. endocarpi, acc. pl. endocarpos: (fungi) “same as angiocarp” (S&D), hence an endocarpus is also “an angiocarpous plant:” “endocarpous (of Gasteromycetes, etc.), having the mature hymenium covered over” (Ainsworth & Bisby) = angiocarpous (S&D), q.v.

NOTE: there is a lichen genus Endocarpon Hedw.: Endocarpon fluviatile; Endocarpon Muhlenbergii; Endocarpon pulvinatum.

Angiocarpus,-i (s.m.II), abl. sg. angiocarpo: angiocarp, “a fruit covered by some envelope which disguises it as the Spanish Chestnut, the Oak, the Filbert, all which have the fruit covered by the cupule” (Lindley); also (fungi) “an angiocarpous plant” (S&D).

 

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