moniliformis,-e (adj.B): moniliform, i.e. cylindrical but contracted at regular intervals like a string of beads; “resembling a string of beads; cylindrical, with contractions at regular intervals” (Fernald 1950); (in fungi) “having swellings at regular intervals like a string of beads” (Ainsworth & Bisby); cf. torosus,-a,-um (adj.A), torulosus,-a,-um (adj.A), cylindrical with [irregular] bulges or contractions at intervals, knotted, with knots or nodes; cf. articulatus,-a,-um (part.A), jointed;

- siliqua teres, continua v. moniliformis, laevis v. costata, coriacea, suberosa v. fungosa, intus continua v. isthmis transversis multilocellaris (B&H); silique terete, continuous or moniliform, smooth [free from unevenness] or costate, leathery, corky or spongy, inside continuous or with the multilocellate with transverse isthmi.

- filamentis fructiferis articulato-moniliformibus, with the fruiting filaments articulate-monifilorm [(i.e. contracted as if beaded].

- baccae saepius stipitatae, inter semina constrictae, moniliformes, rarius ovoideae, continuae (B&H), berries more often stalked, constricted between the seeds, moniliform, more rarely ovoid, continuous [i.e. uninterrupted].

- siliquae lineares, moniliformes; articulis ovalibus vel globosis (B&H), the siliques linear, moniliform; with the articulations oval or globose.

- siliqua elongata, teres, continua v. moniliformis, laevis v. costata (B&H), the silique elongate, round, continuous [i.e. uninterrupted] or moniliform,

- stamina exteriora ananthera superne undulata v. moniliformia, interiora antherifera filamentis torulosis (B&H), outer stamens lacking anthers, undulate or moniform above, the inner ones bearing anthers with torulose filaments.

- legumen teres v. compressum, aequale v. moniliforme, articulis quadratis globosis ovatis oblongis v. linearibus (B&H), the legume round or compressed, uniform or moniliform, with the segments quadrate, globose, ovate, oblong or linear.

- legumen crasso-coriaceum, torulosum, moniliforme v. subglobosum (B&H), legume thickly-leathery, torulose, moniliform or nearly globose.

- legumen elongatum, saepius falcatum, planum convexum v. subteres, continuum moniliforme v. subarticulatum (B&H), legume elongate, more often falcate, flat, convex or nearly terete, continuous, moniliform or nearly jointed [i.e. segmented].

- (fungi) stipites sub lente augentiore moniliformes articulati , articulis compressis , more Torularum (S&A), stipes under a larger lens, moniliform, jointed, with the joints compressed, in the manner of Torulae.

- (fungi) spiculae virgatae e sporulis arcte sessilibus constant, unde per lentem moniliformes apparent (S&A), the spicules wand-like, composed of sporules closely sessile, whence through the lens they appear moniliform.

moniliformi-junctus,-a,-um (part.A): joined or connected together in the manner of a string of beads;

-[Pilophoron; lichen] cephalodia intus dense minute cellulosa et stratum offerentia e granulis gonimis viridi-coerulescentibus breviter ellipsoideis vel subglobosis glomerulose dispositis vel moniliformi-junctis (Nyl.), inside densely, minutely cellulose and presenting a layer composed of greenish-blue gonimic [i.e. green-alga] granules which are shortly ellipsoid or almost globose, arranged in glomerules or moniliformly joined together.

 

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