A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
hypogynus,-a,-um (adj.A): hypogynous, “growing from below the base of the ovary” (Lindley); “free from but inserted beneath the pistil or gynaecium” (Jackson); i.e. situated below base of ovary or oogonium, “situated on the receptacle beneath the ovary and free from it and from the calyx; having the petals and stamens so situated” (Fernald 1950).

- corollae parvas tubo calycem semisuperante, disco hypogyno vix sinuato (F. Mueller), with the tube of the small corolla half-extending over the calyx, with the hypogynous disc scarcely sinuate.

- squamae hypogynae nullae. (F. Mueller), the hypogynous scales none.

- squamae quinqué hypogynae bilobae (F. Mueller), the hypogynous scales five, bilobed.

- squamis hypogynis acute mediotenus bilobis germini saltem aequilongis (F. Mueller), with the hypogynous scales acutely bilobed reaching as far as the middle, at least as long as the ovary.

- squamis hypogynis ad quadrantem obtuse bilobis germen semiaequantibus (F. Mueller), with the hypogynous scales obtusely bilobed to one fourth part, equalling one half the ovary.

- glandula hypogyna viridis perbrevis.(F. Mueller), hypogynous glandules green, very short.

- squamis hypogynis brevibus in cyathulum denticulatum coalitis (F. Mueller), the hypogynous scales short, fused into a denticulate cyathulus.

- corolla vere gamopetala staminibus tubo insertis v. hypogynis in generibus perpaucis parvis per varios Ordines dispersis (B&H), the corolla truly gamopetalous, with the stamens inserted on the tybe or hyogynous in a very few small genera dispersed throughout the various Orders.

- Sepala 3-co (saepius 5), hypogyna, libera, vulgo petaloidea et decidua, imbricata v. (in Clematideis) valvata(B&H), the sepals 3-indefinite (more often 5), hypogynous, free, commonly petaloid and deciduous, imbricate or (in the Clematideae) valvate.

- Stamina 5, cum petalis inserta, glandulis hypogynia v. lobis disci alterna, libera v. tubo corollae gamopetalae adnata (B&H), stamens 5, inserted with the petals, with the glandules hyogynous or [the stamens] alternate with the lobes of the disc, free or adnate to the tube of the gamopetalous corolla.

Hypogynia,-ae (s.f.I), hypogyny, “the condition of possessing hypogynous flowers” (Jackson).

 

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