late (adv.): widely, broadly; compar. latius (adv.) more widely, broadly; superl. latissime (adv.) most widely broadly; opp. anguste (adv.): narrowly; compar. angustius (adv.); superl. angustissime (adv.);

- longe lateque, far and wide (as in dispersal), everywhere, in every direction, widely.

- late ovatus, broadly ovate; latius ovatus, more broadly ovate; latissime ovatus, very broadly ovate.

- [Pisolithus; fungus] Cortice communi demum varie diffracto, peridiolisque vulneri accumbentibus simul etiam laesis, pulvis carcere suo liberatus longe lateque dispergitur (S&A), with the communal cortex [i.e. peridium] then broken off in different ways, and with the peridioles lying along beside it broken also, at the same time, by the injury, the powder freed from its own confines is dispersed far and wide.

- differt a praecedente persimili foliis angustioribus, capsula pulchre citrina tenuiore multo latius striata (Austin) it differs from the preceding very similar [sc. species] by the leaves more narrow, by the capsule beautifully citrine, thinner much more widely striate.

- latissime ovatus, very broadly ovate.

- floribus mox racemosis, siliculis ovatis truncatis seu latissime emarginatis (DeCandolle), with the flowers soon racemose, with the silicles ovate, truncate or very broadly emarginate [i.e. notched].

- labello longe unguiculato latissime ovato acuto basi dilatato concavo, (DeCandolle), with the labellum long unguiculate, very broadly ovate, acute, concave, dilated at the base.

 

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