A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
peduncularis,-e (adj.B), pedunculatus,-a,-um (adj.A): (inflorescence) having a peduncle, pedunculate; “with a flower stalk or peduncle, usually a well-developed one” (Stearn 1996); relating to the peduncle; opp. sessilis,-e (adj.B), q.v.;

- umbellae compositae, pleraeque oppositifoliae, sessiles v. breviter pedunculatae, pauciradiata (B&H), umbels compound, many opposite the leaves, sessile or shortly pedunculate, few-rayed.

- flores solitarii, terminales, longiuscule pedunculati (B&H), flowers solitary, terminal, somewhat long-pedunculate.

- flores in capitula globosa pedunculata dense congesti. (B&H), flowers densely congested in glbbose, pedunculate capitula.

- flores solitarii v. paniculati, terminales v. laterales, sessiles v. pedunculati (B&H), flowers solitary or paniculate, terminal or lateral, sessile or pedunculate.

- flores axillares, solitarii cymosi v. fasciculati, sessiles v. pedunculati, rarius in ramos 3 terminales subspicati (B&H), flowers axillary, solitary, cymose or fasciculate, sessile or pedunculate, more rarely subspicate on 3 terminal branches.

- nuces 8 in orbem dispositae, pedunculatae, 1-spermae(B&H), the nuts 8, arranged in a circle, pedunculate, 1-seeded.

- capitulis 1-2 terminalibus remotis longe pedunculatis, floribus omnibus pedicellatis minimis (Boissier), with the capitula 1-2, terminal, remote, long-pedunculate, with the flowers all pedicellate, very small.

- cymulae pedunculatae, umbelliformes, cymules pedunculate, umbelliform.

- cymis brevissime pedunculatis folio brevioribus (Boissier), with the cymes veryshortly pedunculate, shorter than the leaf.

- [TERNSTROEMIA peduncularis] pedicellis lateralibus flore triplo longioribus (DeCandolle), with the pedicells lateral three times longer than the flower.

- (moss) theca globosa brevi-apiculata brcvi-pedunculata (Mueller), theca globose, short-apiculate, short-pedunculate [i.e. with a short seta].

(moss) A praecedente foliis majoribus non crispis et theca longius pedunculata differt (Mueller), from the preceding it differs by the leaves larger, not crisped, and by the theca more longly pedunculate [i.e. with a longer seta].

Cirrhi pedunculares: “tendrils proceeding from a peduncle” (Lindley).

NOTE: in mosses (Sphagnum), C. Mueller refers to the perichaetial leaves as the ‘peduncular leaves;’

- Folia peduncularia. Perichaetialia nominari nequeunt, quum in longitudine rami totius fructiferi axillaris, saepe creberrima, posita sint. Structura plerumque valde propria basi cellulis elongatis constanter instructa; THE PEDUNCULAR LEAVES. The perichaetial leaves are unable to be named, when they may be situated on the length of the whole axillary, fructiferous branch, often very dense. The structure usually is most specific, uniformly provided with elongate cells at the base.

NOTE: Pedicularis,-is (s.f.III), abl. sg. pediculare, Lousewort, “name from [L.] pediculus, a louse, because of the early European belief that cattle, feeding where P. palustris abounded, became covered with lice” (Fernald 1950).

 

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