A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
microscopic, “of a size requiring the use of a microscope to be seen clearly” (S&D); “of, relating to, or conducted with the microscope; able to see very minute objects; so small or fine as to be invisible or not clearly distinguishable without the use of a microscope; very small or fine” (after WIII): microscopicus,-a,-um (adj. A); very small, microscopic, requiring a lens to see clearly; see little;

- sub lente, under a lens (the usual expression of eighteenth-century authors is, however, oculo armato), i.e. ‘very small’ or microscopic; see lens.

- fundo faucis papillis microscopicis, with the base of the throat with microscopic papillae.

- Nostoc minimum, saepe microscopicum, enormiter globosum vel subglobosum, a Nostoc that is very small, often microscopic, irregularly globose or subglobose.

- [lichen] facie fere Sirosiphonis saxicolae, sed propius inspectum quasi imago microscopica Leptogii Schraderi (Nyl.), with almost the appearance of Sirosipho saxicola, but inspected closer it is almost the microscopic image [i.e. likeness] of Leptogium Schraderi.

- semina ovato-oblonga, sub lente muriculata (DeCandolle), the seeds ovate-oblong, microscopically [i.e. under the lens] muriculate.

- [fungi] minime rarum in Capreae foliis emortuis: at propter minutiem paene microscopicam latebrae ejus intra folii hirsutiem difficilius investigantur (S&A), the least rare on the dead leaves of Caprea: and, because of the extremely small, almost microscopic, size of its hiding place among the hair-covering of the leaf, are investigated with more difficulty [Caprea is perhaps an old generic name for Salix caprea L., a willow with strongly hairy leaves].
