A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
granular, granulate, granulose: granularis,-e (adj.B), granulatus,-a,-um (adj.A), granulosus,-a,-um (adj.A), used of a loose, dry, particulate texture; “divided into little knobs or knots; as the roots of Saxifraga granulata” (Lindley); “with grain-like tubercles or knobs” (Stearn 1996); “(of a [fungal] surface), covered with very small particles” (Ainsworth & Bisby); (in fungi) “(of pileus or stipe) covered with a granule-like substance” (S&D). "Indiscriminate use has made these terms virtually interchangeable; to the earlier authors granulatus meant 'consisting of many little knobs attached by small strings, as in the Saxifraga granulata' (Berkenhout, 1799)" (Stearn); roughened with minute, blunt projections, minutely grainy; note also granulate may indicate ‘almost granular’ and granulose ‘full of grains;’ see grainy;

- tuber exsiccatum nigrum sit minuteque ita corrugatur, ut granulatum appareat (S&A), the tuber when dry may be black and so minutely corrugated so that it may appear granulate.

- protoplasma uniformiter granulosum, protoplasm uniformly granular (Stearn).

- protoplasmate subtiliter granulari, with the protoplasm finely granular.

- membrana aperturae glabra vel granulata, membrane aperture smooth or granulate.

- semina angulata, testa crustácea v. subcarnosa, saepius granulata (B&H), the seeds angled, with the test crustaceous or somewhat fleshy, more frequently granulate.

- seminum testa crustácea, laevis v. granulosa (B&H) = the test of the seeds crustaceous, smooth or granulose.

- seminibus 1-seriatis granulatis v. echinulatis (B&H) with the seeds in one series, granulate or echinulate.

- testa crustacea, subtiliter granulata (B&H), test crustaceous, finely granulate.

- semina nunc laevia nitida, nunc opaca granulosa v. muricata (B&H), the seeds sometimes smooth, shining, sometimes opaque, granulose or muricate.

- carpellis granulato-tuberculosis (DeCandolle), with the carpels granulate-tuberculose.

- Cardamine granulosa, “radice tuberoso-granulosa” (DeCandolle), with the root tuberous-granulose.

- cytioplasma viride, subtiliter granulosum, locello pallidiori vel achroo, centrali rarius laterali, praeditum (Wood, algae), the cytioplasm green, finely granulose, furnished with a central or rarely lateral paler or transparent [i.e. colorless] vacuole.

- sphaerulae atrae, laeviusculae, tantillum rugulosae vel minutissime granulosae (S&A), sphaerules black, somewhat smooth, just a little rugulose or very minutely granulose.

granulans,-antis (adj.B): as if composed of granules, knots or tubercles.

- [Synalissa polycocca] Thallus niger granulosus effusus, in glomerulis granulans quasi areolatus, glomerulis polycarpis difformibus granulis cujusvis glomeruli invicem confluentibus, majoribus hemisphaericis fertilibus (Nylander), thallus (a shining) black, granulose [i.e. full of grains], outspread, becoming grainy in glomerules, as if areolate [i.e. marked into small areas), with the polycarpous [i.e. many-fruited] glomerules of different forms [i.e. misshapen] with the granules [i.e. constituent parts] of any of which glomerules in succession confluent, with the larger hemispheric ones fertile.

scobiculatus,-a,-um (adj.A), scobiformis,-e (adj.B): in fine grains like sawdust.

Suillus granulatus (Fr.) Kuntze: a mushroom with red glandular dots on the stipe.

 

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