A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
revera (adv.; abl. sg. of res vera): in fact, truly, really, actually, genuinely; see certainly; see truly; note that in the examples below, the concept of ‘in truth’ seems to be in doubt: the ‘truth’ is either questioned or confirmed;

- inflorescentia revera dioica, with a truly dioicous inflorescence.

- pedunculi 1-flori, revera axillares, peduncles 1-flowered, genuinely axillary.

- sepala fere aequalia; duo inferiora in basin paulo protrudentem nec revera saccatam nec calcaratam breviter coadunata (F. Mueller), the sepals almost equal; the two lower into the somewhat protruding base neither actually saccate nor spurred, shortly joined together.

- An praecedenti revera affinis? (C. Mueller), or rather is it actually related to the preceding?

- An revera Lyellia?(C. Mueller), is is really a Lyellia?

- a Dicrano trachyblepharo notis laudatis differt. Folia revera elamellosa? Thecae aggregatae? (C. Mueller), it differs from Dicranum trachyblepharum by the characters cited. Are the leaves genuinely lacking lamellae? Are the thecae [truly] aggregated?

- pedunculi 1-flori, revera axillares, sed foliis nondum evolutis intra gemmam terminalem fasciculati (B&H), the peduncles 1-flowered, truly axillary, but in the leaves not yet developed, [the peduncles] in fascicles within the terminal bud.

- placentis revera parietalibus (B&H), with the placentae genuinely parietal.

- species tamen plurimae adhuc imperfecte notae, flores unius alteriusve sexus v. fructus nobis desunt et difficile est divisiones revera naturales limitare (B&H), there are, however, many species at the present time imperfectly known, the flowers of one or the other sex or the fruits are absent with us and it is difficule to define divisions that are genuinely natural.

- petala ut in Reinwardtia fere libera et more Ternstrcemiearum imbricata nec sepalis revera opposita (B&H), the petals, as in Reinwardtia, nearly free and imbricate in the manner of the Ternstroemieae nor [are they] truly opposite to the sepals.

- Goethea semperflorens, Nees et Mart. 1. c. t. 7, a nobis non visa, differt inflorescentia; an revera congener? (B&H), Goethea semperflorens, by us not seen, differs in the inflorescence; or is it really a congener [i.e. member of the same genus].

 

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