A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
Navarchus (nauarchus),-i (s.m.II), abl. sg. navarcho: the master of a vessel, of a ship; perhaps a captain; in more recent times it may refer to an admiral, as of a fleet;

- (moss) Hypnum Freycineti Schwaegr. Si vel maxime genericum nomen mutandum sit, servabitur tamen specificum in memoriam viri de re nautica, geographica et historia naturali meritissimi Freycineti, navarchi" (Mueller), or if the generic name must greatly be changed, yet the specific name will serve in the memory of a man highly meritorius regarding things nautical, geographical and in natural history, Freycinetus, the navarch. [Louis-Claude Desaulses De Freycinet (1779-1842), of the French Navy, a cartographic-surveyor and naturalist to the coast, among other territories, of Australia].

- (moss) Leptotheca Gaudichaudi Schwaegr. In Nova Walesia meridionali prope portum Jacksonis ad terram arenoso-humosam legit in itinere cum Navarcho Freycinet Cl. Gaudichaud.(Mueller), in northern [New South Wales] near the port of Jackson on sandy-humose soil the most eminent Gaudichaud collected it with Freycinet the ship-master.

- Patria. Insula Melville: Sabine, navarchus (Mueller), Native land. Melville Island: Sabine, ship-master.

- in rupibus calcareis Ínsulae Dirk Hartog Island reperit clar. Georgius Clifton, unde forsan primo plantam attulit expeditio Baudiniana et postea A. Cunningham in itinere navarchi King (F. Mueller), the eminent George Clifton found it on calcareous rocks of the island Dirk Hartog Island, whence perhaps he first reported the plant on the Baudinian expedition, and afterward D. Cunningham on the journey [i.e. voyage] of Captain King.

 

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