A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
smaragdinus (zmarag-),-a,-um (adj.A), also smaragdineus,-a,-um (adj.A): smaragdine, of or belonging to the emerald; emerald-green, dark bluish-green, smaragdine; “emerald-green” (Stearn 1996) [> L. smaragdus,-i (s.m.II), q.v.];

- (moss) planta elegantissima tenella habitu Fissidentis, obscura, e foliorum distichorum areolatione ac forma huc pertinens, juvenilis smaragdina, senilis nigrescens (C.Mueller), a most elegant plant, delicate, with the habit of Fissidens, obscure, from the areolation of the distichous [i.e. two-rowed] leaves and the shape to this place pertinent, young [plant] emerald-green, old one becoming blackish.

- [Schistostega osmundacea; moss] protothallus plantae germinantis (Catoptridium smaragdinum Brid. I. Tab. suppl. I.) memorabiliter lucens (C. Mueller), the protothallus of the germinating plant (Catoptridium smaragdinum ‘emerald-green’) remarkably shining.

- Juxta Stilbum rigidum et piliforme in serie naturali collocandus foret fungillus pulcherrimus, pelluciditate vivide smaragdina insignis (S&A), the most beautiful little fungus was to be placed in a natural series beside Stilbum rigidum and piliforme, striking for its vividly emerald-green pelucidity.

- primo unicolor, dein sensim deorsum nigrescit, sursum nitorem smaragdinum conservat (S&A), at first it is of one color, then, gradually it grows dark downwards, upwards it preserves an emerald-green gloss.

NOTE: Lindley, perhaps erroneously, indicated this adjective meant “grass-green.”
