Gynostegium,-ii (s.n.II), abl. sg. gynostegio, nom. & acc.pl. gynostegia, dat. & abl.pl. gynostegiis: “the staminal crown in Asclepias” (Jackson); “a covering of the gynoecium; the staminal crown in plants of the genus Asclepias” (WIII); the gynostegium in the flowers of Asclepiadaceae; cf. corona,-ae (s.f.I), parastas,-adis (s.f.III);

- gynostegium sessile 2 mm. altum, gynostegium sessile 2 mm. high.

- caput gynostegii convexum semiglobosum rostro brevi vix 1 mm. longo alte bifido ornatum, head of the gynostegium convex hemispherical ornamented with a beak short scarcely 1 mm. long deeply bifid (Stearn).

- corona simplex, late tubulosa, gynostegio longior, intus villosa, late 5-loba (B&H), the corona simple, broadly tubulose, longer than the gynostegium, villous within, broadly 5-lobed.

- [Asclepiadaceae] Antherae breves v. oblongae, basifixae, circa stigma arcte conniventes et saepius inter se et cum stigmate plus minus connatae, cum illo filamentisque corpus gynostegium dictum formantes, introrsum 2-loculares, loculis basi saepe in appendices connectivo v. filamento arcte adnatas productis, connectivo apice in membranam producto v. nudo (B&H), anthers short or oblong, fixed at the base, closely connivent around the stigma and rather often more or less fused between them selves and with the stigma, with that and with the filaments forming a body called the gynostegium, inwardly 2-locular, with the locules at the base often prolonged into appendages closely adnate with the connective or filament or naked.

- [Ascl.] coronae squamae 5, erectae, ligulatae, 2-fidae, gynostegium superantes (B&H), the scales of the corona 5, erect, ligulate, 2-fid, surpassing the gynostegium.

- Antherarum pars inferior saepe more Echitidearum vacua, gynostegio (connectivo) adnata (B&H), the lower part of the anthers often empty in the manner of the Echitideae, adnate to the gynostegium (connective).

- corollae tubo ample campanulato et gynostegio longiore (B&H), the tube of the corolla fully campanulate and longer than the gynostegium.

- corolla hypocrateriformis v. fere infundibularis, tubo brevi v. elongato basi dilatato supra gynostegium contracto (B&H), the corolla hypocrateriform or almost funnel-shaped, with the tube short or elongate, at the base dilated, contracted above the gynostegium.

- coronae squamae gynostegio breviores v. vix longiores (B&H), the scales of the corona shorter than the gynostegium or scarcely longer.

- corona membranacea cyathiformi v. fere tubulosa gynostegium saepe (nec semper) superante (B&H), the corona membranaceous, cyathiform [i.e. cup-shaped] or nearly tubulose, often (not always) surpassing the gynostegium.

 

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