A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
homogamous, “when all the florets of a capitulum, etc., are hermaphrodite” (Lindley); “bearing but one kind of flowers” (Fernald 1950): homogamus,-a,-um (adj.A), homogamicus,-a,-um (adj.A); cf. heterogamous.

- [Compositae] capitula discoidea dicuntur si homogama corollis omnibus regularibus v. subregularibus aequalibusque, ligulata si homogama corollis omnibus ligulatis (B&H), the capitula are called discoid if homogamous with all of the corollae regular or almost regular and equal, ligulate if homogamous with all of the corollae lligulate.

- capitula heterogama radiata v. disciformia, v. radio déficiente homogama (B&H), the capitula are heterogamous, radiate or disciform, or homogamous with the ray lacking.

- capitula nunc androgyna v. unisexualia et discreta v. rarius aggregata, nunc homogama discretaque (B&H), the capitula are sometimes androgynous or unisexual and discrete or more rarely aggregate, sometimes homogamous and also discrete [i.e. separate].

- capitula heterogama v. homogama, floribus hermaphroditis fertilibus (B&H), capitula heterogamous or homogamous, with the hermaphrodite flowers fertile.

 

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