- stigma vertice umbonatum v. rostratum (B&H), the stigma at the apex umbonate or rostrate [i.e. beaked].

- achenia capitata v. spicata, stylo brevi nunc brevissimo apiculata, v. longiore rostrata (B&H), achenes capitate or spicate, [i.e. organized into heads or spikes], with the style short, sometimes very short, apiculate or more longly rostrate.

- achenia capitata, stylo persistente rostrata (B&H), the achenes capitate, beaked with the persistent style.

ventricoso-rostratus,-a,-um (adj.A): (in fungi) “ventricose with a tip or beak or narrowed prolongation; same as ‘lageniform,’ ‘sicyoid,’ and ‘cucurbitiform,’ unless one chooses to make distinctions on the length of the neck or prolongation” (S&D), cf. utriform.

NOTE: cf. abrupte (adv.) mucronatus, abruptly mucronate, i.e. ending abruptly in a short point:

- [Aconitum rostratum] ) panicula laxiuscnla, galea conica antice abrupte mucronata (DeCandolle), with the panicle somewhat lax, with the galea conic, antically abruptly mucronate.
