Sometimes, marked with color as if laid on in streaks with a camel’s hair pencil” (Lindley); “brush-like” (Fernald 1950);(bryology) “brushlike and coming to a point; applied to habit of short plants or tops of plants with tufts of erect, narrow leaves” (Magill 1990); (fungi) “like a little brush, esp. like the penicillus (conidiophore and conidia) of Penicillium” (Ainsworth & Bisby); see brush-shaped;

- seminibus utrinque penicillatis (B&H), with the seeds on both sides 'straight but ending in a tuft.'

- stigma penicillato-multifidum, stigma divided into many parts in the form of a brush (Stearn).

- styli terminales, filiformes, stigmate dilatato penicillato aspergilliformi v. laciniato (B&H), the styles terminal, thread-shaped, with the stigma dilated, penicillate [ending in a tuft], brush-shaped or laciniate.

- ovarii lobi longe penicillati (B&H), lobe of the ovaries ovaries long penicillate.

- filamenta pone antheras adnatas longissime penicillata, pills supra antlieram cestivatione infiexis (B&H), the filaments behind the adnate anthers very long penicillate.

- antherae ovatae, introrsum adnatae, apice penicillatae (B&H) anthers ovate, inwardly adnate, penicillate at the apex.

- stamina 5, hypogyna, petalis alterna, filamentis superne incrassatis pone antheras longissime penicillato-pilosis (B&H), stamens 5, hypogenous, alternate to the petals, with the filaments above thickened, behind the anthers very long penicillate-pilose.

- pétala 5, aequalia, sub disco inserta, unguiculata, supra unguem squamula aucta v. penicillata (B&H), petals 5, uniform, inserted under the disc, with a claw, above the claw, enlarged by a small scale or penicillate.

- stigma terminale, subglobosum, densissime penicillato-villosum (B&H), stigma terminal, nearly globose, very densely penicillate-villous.

- (algae) rami ab apice saepe recurvo usque infra medium penicillatae, ramulis versus apicem sensim brevioribus, minoribus subcorymbosis, majoribus penicilliformibus (Agardh), branches from the recurved apex often to below the middle penicillate, with the branchlets toward the apex gradually shorter, the smaller nearly corymbose, the larger penicillate-tufted.

- (algae) Fructus duplex: Favèlla in apice ramulorum terminales solitaria, involucro penicilliformi tectae, è sporis pyriformibus intra perisporium hyalinum conforme singulis, denique arcte conglobatis, constantes (Agardh), fruit double: the favella solitary terminal in the apex of the branchlets, covered with the penicilliform involucre, composed of pyriform spores, individually among the hyaline perisporium individually similar perisporium, ultimately closely conglobate [i.e. gathered into a ball].

 

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