- abruptinervis,-e (Adj.B), with an abruptly terminated nerve or vein.

- laterinervis,-e (adj.B), laterinervius,-a,-um (adj.A): “(obsol.) straight-veined, like the leaves of Grasses” (Lindley).

Syntrichia abruptinervis, with the costa terminating suddenly above the apex of the leaf because the deciduous gemma, which is developed at the costal tip, is broken off, hence the nerve is 'broken off.'

- enervis,-e (adj.B), enervius,-a,-um (adj.A), without a nerve, nerveless.

- evanidinervius, with nerves becoming faint and disappearing before reaching the margin.

- albinervis, with white nerves or veins; curvinervis, with curved nerves; multinervis, many-nerved; nullinervius,-a,-um: nerveless; paucinervis,-e, with few nerves; parallelinervius, parallel-nerved; paucinervius, with few nerves; pinnatinervius, with pinnate nerves; pubinervis, with pubescent nerves; quinquenervus, quinquenervius, 5-nerved; quintuplinervis, five-nerved; tenuinervis, fine-nerved; trinervis, three-nerved; triplinervis, triple-nerved; uninervis, 1-nerved; vaginervis or vaginervius, having veins arranged without any obvious order; 3-16-nervis, 3-16-nerved.

- foliis novem-nerviis, reticulatis (Swartz), with the leaves nine-nerved, reticulate [i.e. netted]; folia 9-nervia, the leaves 9-nerved.

- folia opposita v. rarius alterna, penninervia v. rarius 3-5-nervia ( B&H), the leaves opposite or more rarely alternate, pinnately-nerved or more rarely 3-5-nerved.

- folia palmatinervia v. palmatisecta (B&H), the leaves palmate-nerved or palmate-divided.

- achenia saepius compressa, faciebus 1-3-nerviis -costatisve (B&H), the achenes more often compressed, with the faces 1-3-nerved or -costate.

- gluma I 4-6 mm, 3- 5-nervis, gluma II 6--8 mm, 7-9-nervis, glume I 4-66 mm, 3-5-nerved, glume II 6-8 mm, 7-9-nerved.

- with grooved or furrowed (i.e. sunken) nerves: sulcinervis,-e (adj.B), sulcinervius,-a,-um (adj.A).

- ruptinervis,-e (adj.B), ruptinervius,-a,-um (adj.A): “when a straight ribbed leaf has its ribs interrupted or swollen at intervals” (Lindley).

- folia simplicia (1-foliolata), petiolo brevissimo, penninervia, v. 3-nervia nervis lateralibus costa multo tenuioribus (B&H), leaves undivided (1-leafletted), with the petiole very short, pinnately nerved, or 3-nerved with the lateral nerves much thinner than the costa [i.e. central nerve].

digitinervis,-e (adj.B), digitinerius,-a,-um (adj.A), “digitatinervius,-a,-um (adj.A), digitatinervis,-e (adj.B), when the ribs of a leaf radiate from the top of the petiole” (Lindley); “when the secondary nerves of a leaf diverge from the summit of the main petiole, straight ribbed” (Jackson).

evanidinervius,-a,-um (adj.A), evanidinervis,-e (adj.B): with nerves (or in mosses, the costae) becoming faint and disappearing before reaching the margin or apex; cf. excurrentinervis, with the nerves extending beyond the margin or apex.

excurrentinervius,-a,-um (adj.A), excurrentinervis,-e (adj.B): with the nerves or, in mosses, the costae, extending beyond the margin or apex, with the nerve or costa excurrent.

peltinervis,-e (adj.B), “having ribs arranged as in a peltate leaf” (Lindley).

trinervis,-e (adj.B): “having three ribs all proceeding from the base” (Lindley).

uninervatus,-a,-um (adj.A), uninervis,-e (adj.B): with one rib or nerve.
