Faux, gen. sg. faucis (s.f.III), acc. sg. faucem, abl. sg. fauce: upper part of throat, 'jaws, gullet, throat;' in the singular it is the “orifice of calyx, or corolla, mouth, entrance;” “the orifice or throat of a gamopetalous corolla or calyx; the part between the proper tube and the limb” (Fernald 1950); the throat is referred to as the ‘fauces’ (pl.) by Jackson (1928); Stearn (1983) indicated that in botanical Latin the word is mostly used in the singular; see fauces; see throat;

- calyx tubulatus 4-partitus, fauce squamis petaloideis coronata (DeCandolle), the calyx somewhat tubular, 4-parted, with the throat crownded with petaloid scales.

- petalis faucem versus pilis albidis adpressiusculis barbatis (Boissier), with the petals on the third part toward the throat bearded with whitish somewhat appressed hairs.

- ovarium fauci calycis unilateraliter insertum (B&H), the ovary inserted on one side of the throat of the calyx.

- fauce nuda v. membrana annulari semi-clausa (B&H), with the throat naked or partially-closed with an annular membrane.

- stamina 5, fauci corollas adnata (B&H), stamens 5, adnate to the throat of the corolla.

- petala 0, v. 4 calycis fauci inserta (B&H), petals none or 4, inserted on the throat of the calyx.

- corolla fauce fornicibus lanceolatis integris vel bilobis in conum conniventibus clausa, corolla closed at the throat by lanceolate entire or 2-lobed scales coming together as a cone (Stearn).

- stigma simplex, discoideum quadrilobatum, perigonii faucem claudens, vel hemisphaericum vel conicum vel globosum, stigma simple, disc-like radiatingly four-lobed, the mouth of the perigonium closing, or hemispherical or conical or globose (Stearn).

- filamentis ad faucis parietem tomentosis, with filaments at the wall of the throat tomentose.

- partibus liberis et faucis pariete tomentosis, with the free parts and the wall of the throat tomentose.

- discus tubum calycis vestiens et faucem ejus fere claudens (B&H), the disc clothing the tube of the calyx and almost enclosing its throat.

- stamina 20-60, calycis fauce 1-2-oo-seriatim v. fasciculatim inserta,(B&H), stamens 20-60, on the throat of the calyx 1-2-indefinitely-seriate or fasciculately inserted.
-faux, gen. sg. -faucis (adj.B), abl. sg. -fauci, gen. pl. -faucum: in Lat. comp. -throated;

- brevifaux, with a short throat; glabratifaux, with glabrous throat; rubrifaux, with a red throat; tenuifaux, with a thin throat; trifaux, having three throats, triple-throated.
