A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
parallelogrammus,-a,-um (adj.A): parallelogrammous, consisting of parallel lines [> L. gramma,-ae (s.f.I), from Gk. grammE (Lewis & Short), a line in writing, a stroke of the pen].

- [algae; Diatom] fila subramosa, vel magis minusque simplicia, composita e cymbellis ellipticis vel parallelogrammìs, (Agardh), the filaments somewhat branched, or more or less simple [i.e. undivided], composed of cymellae elliptic or parallelogrammous [i.e. with parallel lines].

- [moss] [folia] e cellulis magnis superioribus subquadratis, inferioribus ex hexagono parallelogrammis composita (C. Mueller), leaves composed of large cells, the upper [i.e. toward the apex] nearly quadrate, the lower [i.e. toward the base] from hexagonous parallelogrammous [i.e. composed of parallel lines].

- [moss] [folia] e cellulis omnibus parenchymaticis magnis basi laxissimis parallelogrammis, apicem versus hexagonis v.polygonis laxis,granulis chlorophyllaceis saepe valde repletis compositae (C.Muell.), [leaves] composed of cells all parenchymatic, large, at the base very lax, parallelogrammous [i.e. consisting of parallel lines], hexagonous or polygonous toward the apex, lax, often very full with chlorophyllaceous granules.

- [moss] areolatio basis: cellulae subparallelogrammae, apicem versus rotundato - hexagonae vel parietibus aequalibus praeditae (C. Muell.), the areolation of the base [i.e. of the leaf]: the cells nearly parallelogrammous [i.e. of parallel lines], toward the apex, rounded-hexagonal or with walls ‘equal’ [i.e. isodiametric, q.v., that is having dimensions that are equal in all directions, e.g. isodiametric parenchyma cells.]

- [moss] folia lanceolata, inferne e cellulis parallelogrammis superne rhomboideo - prosenchymaticis plus minus densis chlorophyllosis composita(C. Muell.), leaves lanceolate, below [i.e. proximally] composed of cells parallelogrammous [i.e. straight-sided or in parallel lines] above [i.e. distally] more or less dense, chlorophyllose.

- [moss] basi laxe et parallelogrammo-areolata (C. Muell.), at the base laxely and parallelogrammously areolate.

- [folia perichaetialia; moss] omnia purpurascentia omnino fere e cellulis parallelogrammis crassiusculis laxis pellucidis areolata (C. Muell.), perichaetial leaves all purple, almost everywhere areolate from cells parallelogrammous, somewhat thickish.

- [moss] folia basi e cellulis parallelogrammis pellucidis superne subrotundis opacis areolata (C. Mueller), leaves at the base areolate from parallelogrammous [i.e. straight-sided] pellucid cells, above [i.e. distally] nearly rounded, opaque.

 

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