hermaphroditic, hermaphrodite, “the stamens and pistils in the same flower” [> L. hermaphroditus,-a,-um (adj.A) having the characters of both sexes” (Jackson): bisexualis,-e (adj.B); hermaphroditus,-a,-um (adj.A); teleianthus,-a,-um (adj.A), roughly monoicous or autoicous; see perfect; see homogamous;

- flores hermaphroditi unisexuales vel polygami, flowers hermaphrodite unisexual or polygamous (Stearn).

- flores hermaphroditi & masculi in distinctis individuis; sanguinei (Swartz), the hermaphrodite flowers and masculine in separate individuals; blood-red.

- carpella in generibus polygamis saepius 3, in hermaphroditis solitaria. (B&H), the carpels in polygamous genera more often 3, in hermaphrodite [sc. genera] solitary [i.e. one].

- flores hermaphroditi v. rarius unisexuales (B&H), the flowers hermaphrodite or more rarely unisexual [i.e. having only stamens or pistils in a flower].

- flores hermaphroditi, regulares, v. in Fumarieis irregulares (B&H), the flowers hermaphrodite, regular [i.e. radially symmetric] or in Fumarieae irregular [i.e. not symmetrical].

Sida hermaphrodita (L.) Rusby ("Linnaeus originally contrasting it [the species] with Napaea dioica)" (Fernald 1950).

NOTE: Radford et al. designate ‘perfect or bisexual’ for the individual flower, and ‘hermaphroditic or monoclinous’ for plants that have all their flowers perfect; see sex (plant); teleianthus, according to Jackson, is the same as ‘hermaphroditic or monoclinous.’

 

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