A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
-rhodos,-i (s.f.II), -rhodon,-i (s.n.II): in Gk. comp. -‘rose;’

Chamaerhodos,-i (s.f.II, note the fem. gender) (Rosaceae), flores erecti, solitarii v. paniculati, parvi, albi v. purpurei (B&H), the flowers erect, solitary or paniculate, small, white or purple, > Gk. chamae, ‘lowly, creeping’ + rhodos, ‘rose;’ Hesperhodos (Rosaceae) (s.f.II); Staphylorhodos (Rosaceae) (s.f.II).

- Platyrhodon macrophyllum (Rosaceae).

NOTE: the following epithets appear to be nouns in apposition: Rosa chamaerhodon; Rosa herporhodon (both Rosaceae).

NOTE: the feminine gender is due to the fact that these are shrubs, which usually are given a fem. gender, although the name is in the second declension.

 

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