- caules nodosi (DeCandolle), the stems with large nodes.

- siliquis submoniliformibns stigmate crasso nodoso terminatis (DeCandolle), with the siliques nearly moniliform [i.e. resembling beads], terminated with a thick, large-knobbed stigma.

- (algae) articuli inferiores ad genicula nodosi, siphonibus spiraliter tortis (Agardh), with the lower articuli (i.e. joints] knot-like at the geniculum, with the tubes spirally twisted.

- (algae) fila primaria vix setacea, ad genicula levissime nodosa (Agardh), the primary filaments scarcely setaceous, very lightly nodose [i.e. thickened] at the geniculum.

- (algae) LEMANIA TORULOSA, filis atrovirentibus nodosis, nodis moniliformiter conjunctis (Agardh), with the filaments black-green, full of knots, with the knots connected in a moniliform manner.

- capsula siliquaeformis, transverse nodosa seu articulata. Semina inter articulationes solitaria (DeCandolle), the capsule like a silique, transversly nodose or articulated. The seeds between the articulations solitary.

- Paullinia nodosa, racemis hinc inde incrassato- nodosis (DeCandolle), with the racemes here and there thickened-knobby.

- [Spergula nodosa, full of nodes] caule simplicissimo, nodis approximatis (DeCandolle), the stem completely unbranches, with the nodes near [to each other].

Juncus nodosus, “knotty; from the septate leaves” (Fernald 1950).

Septum,-i (s.n.II) nodosum (adj.A), abl. sg. septo nodoso = a nodose septum = a clamp-connection, q.v.

Nodose-septum = (fungi) clamp connexion (Ainsworth & Bisby).

NOTE: classically syn. of geniculatus,-a,-um (adj.A), provided with knees, nodes or knots.

 

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