A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
Pseudocarpium,-ii (s.n.II), abl. sg. pseudocarpio: pseudocarp, a spurious or false fruit, “1. a fruit with its accompanying parts, as a strawberry; 2. = galbulus (J.S.Henslow)” (Jackson); see galbulus,-i (s.m.II).

“Other botanists regard the cone as the spurious fruit or pseudocarp of a single flower, and not as a collection of fruits” (Bentley).

Galbulus,-i (s.m.II), abl. sg. galbulo: “a strobilus, whose scales are fleshy, and combined into a uniform mass” (Lindley): “the fruit of the cypress, a modified cone, the apex of each carpellary scale being enlarged and somewhat fleshy” (Jackson).

 

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