- spicula flosculos continentes, spikelets containing the florets.

NOTE: Compositae (Bentham & Hooker:

Flores (flosculi Auct. plur.) hermaphroditi v. abortu unisexuales, plures rarius singuli in receptáculo communi (clinanthio Auct. plur.) sessiles v. subsessiles, involucro communi (periclinio Auct. plur.) e bracteis {squamis phyllis v. phyllariis Auct. plur.) 1-oo-seriatis liberis concretisve cincti, capitulum (anthodium v. calathidium Auct. plur.)florem singulum simulans formantes;

the flowers (florets of many authors) hermaphrodite or by abortion unisexual, many more rarely single on a common [i.e. mutual] receptacle (the clinanthium of many authors), sessile or nearly sessile, with a common involucre (the periclinium of many authors) surrounded by bracts (scales, leaves or phyllaries of many authors) 1-[indeterminate]-rowed, free or fused, forming a capitulum (anthodium or calathidium of many authors) resembling a single flower.

 

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