A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
Minuties,-ei (s.m.IV), abl. sg. minutie: minuteness, tininess, extremely small size;

- [Micromitrium; moss] Ephemera valde referentes distinctae tamen calyptrae forma et minutie (Austin), strongly resembing the [genus} Ephemera, yet distinct by the form of the calyptra and the minuteness.

- [fungi] pustularum nimia minuties cultelli conamina recusat: ita et fibrillulae adeo sunt delicatae, ut merum pigmentum arbusculiforme primo obtutu facile mentiantur (S&A), the excessive minuteness of the pustules resists the efforts of the knife: so much so delicate also are the fibrillules, as at first observation easily falsely resemble the tiny tree-like pure pigment.

- [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].

- discrepat a praecedente colore duplici , minutie et apice nudo subularum (S&A), it differs from the preceding by the double color, by the extremely small size and by the apex of the subulae naked.

- [lichen] minutie et macula pallida thallina facile dignotum (Nyl.), easily distinguished by its small size and the pale thalline spots.

- [lichen] facile est praetervisum ob minutiem, defectum thalli et apothecia saepe admodum sparsa (Nyl.), easily overlooked due to its small size, the abnormality of the thallus and the apothecia often completely scattered.

- species fructus minutie singularis (F. Mueller), the kind of fruit is singular in its small size.

 

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