- folia spinoso-dentata et nonnumquam in spinas mutata (B&H), leaves spinose-dentate and sometimes changed into spines (acc. pl.).

- folia solitaria in Oresitroplie; in ascidia mutata in Cephaloto (B&H), leaves solitary in Oresitrophe, changed into ascidia in Cephalotus.

- petala 0, nisi stamina exteriora in glándulas stipitatas mutata (B&H), petals none, except the outer stamens transformed into stalked glandules.

- stipulae in pilos subscariosos fasciculatos v. ligulaeformes mutatae (B&H), stipules in somewhat membranous fasciculate hairs or altered in the shape of ligules [i.e. straps].

- petalis numero aequalia, dupla aut multiplicia, interdum in squammulas nectariferas mutata (DeCandolle), with the petals equal in number, double or multiplied, sometimes changed into nectar-bearing squamules.

- lamellae ante evolutionem albidae, pulvere mox seminali copioso incarnato - roseo tinctae colorem mutant (S&A), the lamellae, before their unfolding, whitish, tinted with the copious reproductive powder [i.e. spores] having become fleshy to rose-colored, they change color.

- sepala tamen in omnibus gradatim in petala mutata sunt (B&H), the sepals, however, in all [genera] gradually are changed into petals.

- (fungus) Fig 7. Ceratium hydnoides: (a) (c) mole nativa recens (b) semidestructum; ad varia augmenta (e) (f) vigens (d) in pulpam semimutatum (S&A), (a) (c) fresh, in its native mass (b) partially broken down; at various magnifications (e) (f) growing (d) partly changed into a pulp.

- (algae) postea in opusculo de anabiosi (l851) propter diversam gonidiorum genesin a Characiis separatam sub nomine generico Ascidii proposui, quod nunc propter homonymum Lichenum genus cum Hydrocytii nomine mutavi (Braun), later, in a little work regarding anabiosis, I proposed it separated from the Characiae because of the different development of the gonidia, under the generic name Ascidium, which I have changed with the name Hydrocytium at the present time because of the genus being a homonym of Lichens.

- [Ryanaea] Nomen tantillum mutavi ne confundatur cum Riana (BeCandolle), I have altered the name a little bit lest it be confused with [the genus] Riana.

- an sectiones in genera mutandae? (DeCandolle), perhaps the sections should be changed into genera? [mutandae = gerundive, an adj. modifying ‘sectiones’ in nom. pl.]

immutatus,-a,-um (part.A): unchanged, unaltered; see immutatus,-a,-um (part.A);
