A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
paulatim (adv.), paullatim (adv.): little by little, gradually, by degrees; opp. subito (adv.), abruptly, suddenly;

- frondibus apicem versus paulatim decrescentibus, with the fronds toward the apex gradually diminishing.

- pileus initio aequaliter hemisphaerico-convexus; dein paullatim applanatur, demum planissimus, exacte disciformis (S&A); the pileus in the beginning equally hemispheric-convex; then little by little it is flattened, finally entirely flat, precisely disciform.

- [Sphagnum] folia ramulina aut paulatim aut subito apiculata (Warnst.), the branchlet leaves either gradually or abruptly [i.e. suddenly] apiculate.

- [fungi] villus tegmineus detritus paullatim et evanidus pulverem denudat opace viridem, ad latera diutius persistens (S&A); the villus [i.e. villocity or hair-covering] that serves to cover, when little by little worn away and having disappeared exposes a darkly green powder, persisting longer on the sides.

 

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