A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
loculicidalis,-e (adj.B), loculicidus,-a,-um (adj.A): of a capsular fruit, loculicidal, the cavity of a pericarp “dehiscent longitudinally so as to bisect each loculus” (WIII); “that mode of dehiscence which consists in ripened carpels splitting or dehiscing through their backs” (Lindley); longitudinally splitting down the back or loculus or chamber, not at the septa, as opposed to septicidal, q.v., i.e., when a capsule splits along lines of junction (septa); dehiscing through the locules of a fruit rather than through the septa; “the cavity of a pericarp dehiscent by the back, the dorsal suture” (Jackson); “dehiscent into the cavity of a locule of an ovary through the dorsal suture” (Fernald 1950) [> L. loculus, locule, + -i- +-cid-, > L. caedere, to cut]; cf. circumscissile, porocidalis,-e (adj.B), septicidalis,-e (adj.B);

- capsula loculicida, interdum simul septicida (B&H), the capsule loculicidal, sometimes at the same time septicidal.

- pericarpia dehiscentia loculicida (DeCandole), the pericarps dehiscent, loculicidal.

- carpella nunc 1-2-sperma intus rima dehiscentia, nunc polysperma loculicido-dehiscentia aut medio septifera, septo ad latus interius semina gerente; nunc sublibera, nunc in capsulam multilocularem , nunc in baccam anomalam connata (DeCandolle), the carpels sometimes 1-2-seeded dehiscing by an internal fissure, sometimes many-seeded, loculicidally dehiscent or bearing septa in the middle, with the septum on the interior side bearing seeds.

- capsula 3-valvis, septis, valvaribus, dehisc.-loculicida (DeCandolle), the capsule 3-valved, with septa, valvate, the dehiscence [dehiscentia] loculicidal.

NOTE: loculicidalis,-e (adj.B) q.v., when the carpels split down the back half-way between (and not along) the lines of junction or the dissepiments, as opposed to septicidalis,-e (adj.B), when a capsule [does split] into its component carpels along the lines of junction or the dissepiments (inward running partitions) (Stearn).

NOTE: nervalis,-e (adj.B): situated on a nerve; “1. synonym of loculicidal, the dehiscence being along the mid-rib of the carpels; 2. relating to the midrib of a leaf, as a prolongation of it - as a tendril” (Jackson).

 

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