patellaris,-e (adj.B), patelliformis,-e (adj.B), (fungi) “like a round plate having a well-marked edge” (Ainsworth & Bisby), “kneepan-shaped. Broad, round, thick; convex on the lower surface, concave on the other; the same as meniscoideus, but thicker” (Lindley); patellarius,-a,-um (adj.A): “disk-shaped with a narrow rim” (WIII); knee-cap shaped, dish-shaped, saucer-shaped; “disk-shaped” (Fernald 1950); “dish-shaped, saucer-shaped” (Stearn 1996); apparently shallowly concave and round (a disc would be flat and round); see dish-shaped, i.e. shaped like a shallowly concave disc; see meniscoidalis,-e (adj.B);

- operculum recens paulo concavum, exsiccatione patellare (F. Mueller), the fresh operculum somewhat concave, upon drying out, saucer-shaped.

- calycis tubus hemisphaericus v. patellaris cum germinis basi connatus (F. Mueller), the tube of the calyx hemispheric or saucer-shaped, connate with the base of the ovary.

- capsulae polyspermae parte infera patellari-turbinata (F. Mueller), with the lower part of the many-seeded capsule, disk-shaped- to top-shaped.

- calyx persistens, cyatho-morphus v. patelliformis, breviter pluridentatus (F. Mueller), the calyx persistent, cup-shaped or dish-shaped.

- folia laxe imhricata, orbicularis usque ad apicem valde quin imo fere patelliformi-concava (Mueller), the leaves loosely imbricate, orbiculate, up to the apex strongly, or even from the lowest base almost dish-shaped - concave.

- [fungi] P. Patellaria [sic] sicca rugulosa ac subdifformis: humectata figurata patellae Lichenisve scutellae regularem resumit (S&A), when dry rugulose and deformed; when moistened it resumes being regular, of the normal shape of a dish (patella) or the scutella of Lichens.

NOTE: a saucer is a small dish; see dish.

NOTE: scutiformis,-e (adj.B): shaped like a scutum, “patelliform, but oval and round (Lindley); platter-shaped (A. Gray)” (Jackson).

 

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