A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
impressus,-a,-um (part.A): impressed, embedded, sunk below the surface as if pressed in, “marked with slight depressions” (Jackson); “bent inward, hollowed or furrowed as if by pressure” (Fernald 1950), “sunken or impressed, as veins may be” (Stearn 1996) [> L. imprimo (inpr-), -pressi,-pressum, 3, to press into or upon, to stick, stamp or dig into, to impress, imprint; to engrave, stamp, mark; pressed down, bent]; cf. punctate, marked with dots, depressions; cf. immersus,-a,-um (part.A);

NOTE: also, later meaning “printed” or impressed, as on a coin or book.

- nervo medio supra bene impresso, with middle nerve above well impressed.

- nervo supra profunde impresso, with the nerve above deeply impressed.

- sori impressi, partem superiorem laciniarum occupantes, sori impressed, occupying the upper part of the laciniae (segments).

- nerviis foliorum complanatis (non superne impressis), with the nerves of the leaves flattened out (not on the upper side pressed in).

- petala totidem v. plura (usque ad 15), basi fovea nectarifera impressa v. squamula aucta (B&H), the petals as many as [the sepals] or more (to 15), impressed at the base with a nectariferous pit or enlarged with a scale.

- valvis medio vix solutis, ad dissepimentum extus impressis (B&H), with the valves in the middle scarcely breaking up, externally on the dissepiment impressed [i.e. sunk below the surface].

- folia integerrima et saepius carnosa v. impresso-punctata (B&H), the leaves quite entire and more often fleshy or impressed-punctate.

- folia saepe supra lineis impressis (B&H), the leaves often above marked with impressed lines.

- folia juniora supra lineis impressis notata (B&H), the younger leaves marked above with impressed lines.

- sepala dorso glandula impressa onusta (B&H), the sepals on the back loaded with an impressed glandule.

- folia subtus saepius glandulis impressa (B&H), the leaves below more often with embedded glandules.

- [lichen] Ita simile est Stereocaulo stricto, ut cum eodem jungerem, nisi obstaret textura cephalodiorum ; haec laeviuscula (parum scrobiculato-impressa) (Nyl.), similar in this way is Stereocaulon strictum, such that I might have joined it with the same, except texture of the cephalodia would oppose it; this [i.e. the texture] is almost smooth, somewhat scrobiculate [i.e. pitted]-impressed.

printed:

- a B. rurali notis cursive impressis facile discernibilis, easily discernable from Barbula ruralis by the characters cursively impressed (printed) [from a description where key features were printed in italics].

- [moss] ab A. heteromalla proxima notis cursive impressis longe distat (C. Mueller), from the nearest to it A. heteromalla far distant by the characters cursively impressed (printed).

 

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