A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
glomeratus,-a,-um (part.A): collected closely together into a head, or glome; compactly clustered [> L. glomero,-avi,-atum, 1., to wind round, make a ball or sphere; to gather or heap into a mass]; often used interchangeably with capitatus,-a,-um (part.A), q.v., although Bentham and Hooker distinguish them [in some way], perhaps as ‘clustered’ rather than ‘into a head’ i.e. capitulate; cf. conglobatus,-a,-um (part.A), collected or heaped into a sphere; cf. conglomeratus,-a,-um (part.A), densely clustered, pressed or heaped together;

- capitulum glomeratum (Swartz), the capitulum collected into a ball.

- flores terminales, capitati v. glomerati (B&H), flowers terminal, capitate or glomerate.

- flores minuti, in capitula parva secus rachidem simplicem in racemulos breves congesta glomerati (B&H), flowers tiny, clustered, congested into small headlets along the unbranched (simple) rachis into short racemules .

- ovulis 00, ad bases connatas carpellorum glomeratis. (B&H), with ovules [indeterminate, infinite], gathered into a head, [the ovules together] connate [or fused] to the bases of the carpels.

- flores ad axillas solitarii v. glomerati. (B&H), flowers at the axils solitary or in heads.

- racemuli v. glomeruli axillares terminalesque abbreviati (B&H), shortened small racemes or heads axillary and terminal.

- nunc liquore v. pulpa viscosa circumdata et quasi glomerata (B&H), sometimes surrounded with a fluid or viscous pulp and as if in a mass.

- flores terminates, solitarii cymoso-paniculati v. glomerati, (B&H), flowers terminal, solitary cymose-paniculate or in heads.

Madia glomerata (clustered) “heads many in terminal and axillary glomerules” (Fernald 1950).

NOTE: Fernald (1950) defined agglomerate as “heaped or crowded into a dense cluster, but not cohering.” Perhaps ‘capitulate’ is a cluster of coherent or adherent organs, such as flowers.

 

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