A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
monadelphous (stamens), with filaments or stamens united in one structure: “United by their filaments into a tube or column” (Fernald 1950); cf. diadelphous (stamens), “combined in two often unequal sets;” see -adelphus,-a,-um (adj.A);

- stamina diadelpha v. submonadclpha. (B&H), stamens diadelphous [i.e. combined in two sets] or incompletely monadelphous [i.e. united by their filaments into a tube].

- filamenta supra insertionem monadelpha v. sub antheris libera, filaments above the insertion monadelphous [united into a column] or free below the anthers.

- saepissime filamentis plus minus monadelphis (B&H), most frequently with the filaments more or less monadelphous.

- genus a Bakero servatur charactere e filamentis altius monadelphis sumpto (B&H), a genus by Baker conserved with the character taken from the filaments monadelphous in a taller manner.

- stamina monadelpha, antheris columnae extrorsum in annulum adnatis (B&H), the stamens monadelphous, with the anthers outside the column adnate into an annulus.

- stamina alte monadelpha v. singillatim fasciculatimve petalis opposita (B&H), the stamens tall monadelphous or singly or fasciculately [in fascicles] opposite the petals.

- stamina saepissime monadelpha, antheris tubo sessilibus v. saepissime stipitatis (B&H), the stamens most often monadelphous, with the anthers sessile on the tube or most often stalked.

- stamina 2-seriata, exteriora (5) fertilia basi monadelpha, interiora totidem sterilia, post anthesin in conum torum subclaudentem coalita (B&H), the stamens in 2 series, the outer (5) fertile, at the base monadelphous, the inner just as many sterile, after the period of flowering fused into a cone somewhat enclosing the torus.

- filamenta saepius dilatata v. crassiuscula, libera v. in fl. masculis monadelpha (B&H), the filaments very often dilated or somewhat thick, free or in the male flowers monadelphous.

- stamina ad 6, omnia antherifera, filamentis longe cum gynophoro basi in columnam monadelpham connatis, deinde fìliformibus, subaequalibus (B&H), stamens to 6, all bearing anthers, with the filaments long-connate with the gynophore at the base into a monadelphous column.

- filamentis liberis v. basi monadelphis saepe declinatis(B&H), with the filaments free or at the base fused together, often declinate [i.e. bent or curved downwards.

NOTE: the monadelphous filamens or stamens may also be fused into a globe or sphere:

- stamina 5-15, basi v. alte in massam globosam v. orbem monadelpha (B&H), stamens 5-15, at the base of high monadelphous into a globose mass or sphere.

 

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