- [Ranunculus aquatilis] foliis petiolatis, omnibus emersis, circumscriptione suborbiculatis (DeCandolle), with the leaves petiolate, all emersed, with the circumference nearly circular.

- cariopsides compresso-planae ovali-orbiculata; glabra (DeCadolle), the cariopses compressed-flat, oval-circular, glabrous.

- bacca, plurilocularis (3 4 5) orbiculata (Necker), berry with many locules (3,4,5), orbiculate [i.e. globular].

- capsula, orbiculata, 2-partibilis (Necker) capsule, orbiculate [i.e. globulate], 2-partible.

- fructus, orbiculatus, angulis dehiscens & in semina 2-orbiculata, divisus (Necker) the fruit orbiculate [i.e. globulate], dehiscent at the angles and divided into 2 orbiculate seeds.

- sem. orbiculato-compressa (Necker), seeds [=semina] orbiculate-compressa [i.e. circular flattened, as in a disc].

- Stigma structurà diversum; disciforme, plano-orbiculatum (Necker), stigma diverse in structure, disc-shaped, flat-circular.

- fructus, orbiculatus, compreiro-planus (Necker), fruit orbiculate [i.e. circular, as a disc], compressed-flat.

- bacca, pluriîocularis (3 4 5) orbiculata (Necker), berry with many locules (3,4,5), orbiculate [i.e. globular].

- antherae oblongae, rarius orbiculatae (B&H), anthers oblong [i.e. rounded with the sides parallel, longer than broad], more rarely orbiculate [i.e. circular in outline].

- labellum basi in unguem contractum, superne lanceolatum v. orbiculatum (B&H), the labellum at the base contracted into a claw, above lanceolate or orbiculate [i.e. circular].

- pollen granulosum, appendicibus orbiculatis corpusculorum oblongorum applicitum (B&H), the pollen granulose, attached to the circular appendages of oblong bodies.

- embryo rectus, cotyledonibiis late orbiculatis crassis, radicula brevi (B&H), the embryo straight, with the cotyledons broadly orbiculate, thick, with a short radicle.

- folia petiolata, inferiora orbiculata, integra, minuta, plana (Swartz), the leaves petiolate, the lower circular, entire, minute, flat.

NOTE: orbiculatus according to some usages seems to refer more to a plane shape (circular, disk-like) and orbicular to a solid (spherical) shape, for example, Jackson () indicated 'orbicular' as 'of a flat body with a circular outline,' and orbiculate was 'disk-shaped.' >>

NOTE: “having the form of an orb: circular or nearly circular in outline” (WIII).

 

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