A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
Glumella,-ae (s.f.I), abl. sg. glumella: lodicule; “[obs.] “that part of the flower of a Grass now called the palea. Also, in the language of Richard, one of the hypogynous scales in such a plant” (Lindley); “1. the palea of grasses; 2. the lobicule of the same (Richard)” (Jackson); see lodicule;

- glumellis externis amborum florum hermaphroditorum dorso aristatis, internis apice eroso-truncatis subciliatis, with the outer paleae of both hermaphrodite flowers aristate on the back, the internal ones erose-truncate, somewhat ciliate at the apex (Boissier).

- glumis lanceolatis subaequalibus acutis muticis, glumellis externis amborum florum hermaphroditorum dorso aristatis, internis apice eroso-truncatis subciliatis. (Boissier), with the glumes lanceolate, nearly equal, acute, muticous, with the outer glumellas (lodicules, paleae) of both hermaphrodite flowers aristate on the back, the internal ones erose-truncate at the apex, somewhat ciliate.

- glumis carina scabris, glumella superiore minima, inferiore sub medio dorso arista calycem multo superante munita, apice bifida. (Boissier), with the glumes on the keel scabrous, with the upper glumella very small, the lower under the middle of the back armed with an awn much exceeding the calyx, bifid at the apex.

- Gaimardia defectu bracteolarum (seu glumellarum) inter Centrolepideas forsan proxime Trithurias accedit, habitu aliisque notis longe distat. (F. Mueller), Gaimardia, by a defect of the bracteoles (or glumellae) approaches among the Centrolepideae perhaps nearest to Trithuriae, but the habit and other characters it is far distant.

- glumae lanceolatae acutatae nervosae, haud distincte carinatae. Glumellas inferiores gradatim majores, superiores minores, summa tabescens (F. Mueller), the glumes lanceolate, somewhat acute, full of nerves, not distinctly keeled. The lower glumellae gradually larger, the upper ones smaller, the highest aborted [i.e. wasting away].

 

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