A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
humi (adv.): ‘on the ground;’ (adverbial form of humus,-i (s.f.II), abl. sg. humo: the earth, ground, the organic portion of soil, humus);

- ramis humi jactis, with the branches fallen to the ground.

- in quisquiliis vegetabilibus humi jacentibus hortorum, agrorum etc. coelo pluvio minime infrequens (S&A), on discarded plant rubbish on the ground of gardens, fields, etc., least infrequent in wet weather.

- sebum exacte aemulatur in statu recenti, muscos, ramulos, aliasque quisquilias humi jacentes incrustans (S&A), it precisely resembles grease in its fresh state, encrusting mosses, twigs and the other fallen rubbish on the ground.

- truncos abietinos aliosque praeamat vulgatior a, folia ac varias quisquilias humi degentes locis praesertim tectis b; utraque aestiva et autumnalis (S&A), it loves very much fir-tree trunks and other [trees], more common a, leaves and various litter living on the ground, especially roofs b; each one of summer and autumn.

- frequens viget species excentrica locis praesertim suffocatis, intra acervos v. c. quisquiliarum variarum humi collectarum degens, aestate madida (S&A), a common excentric species especially in smothered [i.e. airless] places, [vidi cultam: I have seen it grow] living within heaps of the various collected refuse on the ground, in a moist summer.

- non tantum in truncis ramisque dejectis putredine tactis vulgaris est; sed et in foliis aliisque quisquiliis humi jacentibus udis (S&A), not only is it common on fallen trunks and branches touched with rot, but also on wet leaves and other litter fallen on the ground.

- [fungi] rarior nobis, nec nisi loco unico (Moholzer Haide) in truncis populinis alneisque humi jacentibus putrefactis hactenus obvia (S&A), it is rarer with us, except for one place (Moholzer Haide) encountered thus far on putrified Poplar and Alder trunks laying in ruins on the ground.

 

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