A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
quodammodo (adverbial phrase; quodam modo): in a certain manner (or degree, or way, or measure), so to speak, in a certain a way; somewhat; see quadantenus (adv.); see somewhat;

- genus quodammodo Asperugini affine etsi habitu calycibus et nuculis alienum, genus in a certain manner to Asperugo akin, although by habit, calyces and nultets different (Stearn).

- [lichen] status singularis, quodammodo leprarioideus aut Leprariis analogus, maxime diminutus et tenellus Leptogii laceri (Nyl.), a singular placement, somewhat leprarioid or analogous to the Leprariae, a greatly reduced and delicate Leptogium lacerum.

- species in operibus supra citatis in series 1 2 sat naturales sed limitibus quodammodo incertis distribuuntur (B&H), the species in the works cited above is distributed into 12 quite natural series, but in some degree with uncertain limits.

- habet se haec species quodammodo ad carneolam (saltem varietalem ejus), fere ut Clad, pyxidata ad fimbriatam; illae tamen invicem melius distinctae, hae nimis interdum confluentes (Nyl.), this species finds itself to some extent to [Clad.] carneolam (at least a variety of it), almost as Clad. pyxidata is to fimbriata, however the former in turn is better distinguished, the latter sometimes too much running together [i.e.intergrading].

- forma orbicularis aut oblonga; vel pulvinata, vel conico-decurtata, truncaturae tum disco saepe concaviusculo ac quodammodo marginato (S&A), the shape is orbicular or oblong; or pulvinate, or conic-decurtate [i.e.cut away or truncate], accordingly with the disc of the truncature often somewhat concave and in some degree bordered.

- [Leptogium microphylloides] facie quodammodo Collematis microphylli macrioris (Nyl.), in some ways with the appearance of a more depauperate Collema microphyllum.

- habitu, statione, tempore &c. Dianthera quidem a Justicia quodammodo differt, charactere vero floris essentiali omnino convenit, ideoque inter Justicias collocanda (Swartz), at least by the habit, station [i.e. habitat], season &c., Dianthera differs in a certain way from Justicia, yet certainly by the essential character of the flower it thoroughly agrees, therefore it is to be placed among the Justicias.

- [algae] Magna itaque in eo inest differentia coniocystarum et sporidiorum, quod licet utraque organa singula individua tantum generant, est compositio utriusque longe diversa, sporidia quodammodo simplicia, coniocystae ex pluribus compositae (Agardh), thus contained in this there is a great difference of the coniocysts and sporidia, because granted that either of the two individual organs each only procreates, the composition of either one is far different, the sporidia in a certain degree are simple, the coniocysts are compound from very many [i.e. distinct parts].

 

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