A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
inflatus,-a,-um (part.A): inflated, swollen; 'bladdery, i.e. thin, membranous and swollen;' “thin, membranous, slightly transparent, swelling equally, as if inflated with air” (Lindley) [> L. inflo,-avi, atum, 1., blow out, puff out, to swell]; see swollen;

- cellulae inflatae caules infirmos sustinentes, the inflated cells supporting the weak stems.

- conidiophora in apicem gracilem abrupte decrescentia, in vesciculam inflatam terminantia, conidiophores to a slender apex abruptly narrowing, in a vesicle swollen ending.

- (moss) theca longiore minus inflata, the theca longer, less inflated.

- (moss) calyptra tetragona pyramidata apiculata, basi integra, thecam longe superans totam obtegens inflata persistens (Mueller), the calyptra tetragonal, pyramidate, apiculate, entire at the base, long overtopping the theca, covering the whole thing, inflated, persistent.

- calyptra inflato-cucullata basi rotundata, the calyptra inflated-cucullate, rounded at the base.

- (alga) Fila simplicia intus annulata, a globulo hemispherico egredientia bina, e strato medullari radiantia, sacculo mucilaginoso basi cincta, in frondem gelatinosam (saepe separatione inflatam) laxe disposita (Agardh), the filaments unbranched, annulated within, issuing forth two at a time, from a hemispheric globule, radiating from a medular layer, girdled at the base by a mucilaginous little sack [saccule], laxly arranged into a gelatinous frond (often inflated at the separation).

- (alga) fronde magna laete viridescente inflato-bullata (Agardh), with the frond large, brightly greenish, inflated-bullate [i.e. blistered or bubbly].

- (alga) tendentia frondis centrifugali saepe oritur juxta basin protuberantia, quae sensim a matrice segregatur, magnitudine fere pisi majoris, sensim inflatur et in frondem novam matri conformem evolvitur (Agardh), with the tendency [i.e. course of development] of the frond centrifugal, often with a protuberance arisen next to the base, which gradually is segregated from the matrix, with the magnitude almost of a larger pea, gradually swollen and developed into a new frond of the same shape as the mother [i.e. producing frond].

- (alga) scaphidiis in basi inflata spinarum nidulantibus subsolitariis (Agardh), with the scaphidia nestling at the inflated base of the spines, nearly solitary.

- (alga) receptacula ramos ramulosque omnes terminantia, 1-3 lineas longa, ex inflatis spinarum confluentium basibus formata (Agardh), the receptacles terminating all of the branches and branchlets, 1-3 lines long, formed from the inflated bases of the confluent spines.

Hypha inflata (part.A), a hypha “in which cells behind the growing apex enlarge and cause the apparent rapid rate of growth characteristic of most agaric and gasteromycete fruit bodies” (Ainsworth & Bisby).

 

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