A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
Infundibulum: infundibulum,-i (s.n.II), abl.sg. infundibulo (diatoms), lit. a funnel; in diatoms, “the broad, funnel-shaped, perforate inward extension of the calyptra at the opposite end of the frustule from the epicalve face. It is supported by the terminal ends of the fala and appears to attach to the calyptra and lacinia without overlap or suture. A circular opening to the interior of the frustule is present at the center of the infundibulum and appears to be covered by a siliceous plate (infundibular operculum) of slightly larger diameter than the central opening” (from the Diatom Wiki, http://frustule.jx3.net/index.php/Infundibulum; Mar.7, 2014).

 

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