- pileus in statu juvenili tomentosus v. villosus, dein glaberrimus, the pileus in the young state tomentose or villous, ultimately very smooth.

- eorum apices obtusi, subtruncati, alii papilla prominente glabra coronati, alii poro rimulave conspicui (S&A), the apices of these obtuse, almost truncate, some crowned with a prominent smooth papilla, others conspicuous with a pore or small fissure.

- ostiola admodum rudia, superficialibus conspicua valiibus jugisque, sed glabra (A&S), the ostioles quite rough, conspicuous with surficial valleys and ridges but glabrous.

- carpellis compressis punctulatis superficie fere glabris, marginem exteriorem versus sparse ciliatis (Boissier), with the carpels compressed punctulate, on the surface almost smooth, toward the outer margin sparsely ciliate.

- carpellis elongatioribus pubescentibus margine glabris (Boissier), with the carpels more elongate, pubscent, on the margin smooth [i.e. hairless].

- tota planta glaberrima (Boissier), the whole plant very smooth.

- foliis pinnati-sectis subtus velutinis, superne glabris (DeCandolle), with the leaves pinnatisect, underneath velvety, on the upper surface glabrous.

- [Clematis glabra] foliis ternatim sectis, segmentis glaberrimis ovatis acuminatis, pedicellis glabris (DeCandolle), with the leaves ternately divided, with the segments very smooth, ovate acuminate, with the pedicels smooth.

- folia ovata, obtuse angulata, margine ciliata, superne glabra, interne pilosa, albescentia; nervis subtus ciliatis (Swartz), the leaves ovate, obtusely angulate, ciliate on the margin, above smooth, inwardly pilose, whitish, with the nerves below ciliate.

- foliis supra glabris, subtus tenuiter cinerascenti-velutinis (F. Mueller), with the leaves above hairless, below finely ashy-gray-velvety.

- foliolis lanceolatis supra glabris, subtus cum ramis et inflorescentia fusco-argenteis lepidotis (F. Mueller), with the leaflets lanceolate, above glabrous, below, together with the branches and inflorescence dark-silver lepidote [i.e. scaly].

- capsulis acuminatis glabris base stipitato-attenuatis intus dense sericeo-tomentosis (F. Mueller), with the capsules acuminate, hairless, at the base stalked-attenuate, inside densely silky-tomentose.

NOTE: glabrous also seems to have been used to indicate ‘smooth,’ i.e. without ridges or furrows.

 

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