A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
Mucor,-oris (s.m.III), abl. sg. mucore: mold, moldiness; the moldiness of bread; mustiness, as in wine vinegar; a moisture which flows from vines and is injurious to them (Lewis & Short); a genus of molds, type of the family Mucoraceae, comprised of the genera Rhizopus and Mucor “that are destructive to food products (as bread, fruits, or vegetables)” (WIII);

- mucore albido (cortice scilicet in pulverem grossiorem soluto) obductum (S&A), covered with a whitish mold (namely with the cortex disintegrated into a coarser powder).

Mucor Mich. ex Fr., Mucorales: M. flavidus, M. Aspergillus, M. caninus, M. murinus, M. tenellus, etc.

- [Mucor herbariorum ‘of herbaria;’ fungus] extra herbaria etiam panis indurati mucidorumque lignorum incolam passim vidimus (S&A), beyond [i.e. in addition to] herbaria we saw it everywhere an inhabitant of hardened [i.e. stale] bread and musty wood.

 

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