A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
spec.: abbrev. for specimen,-inis (s.n.III), q.v.

- Fissidens dicarpos Brid. II. p. 698. e spec. authenticis, thecis geminatis, foliis crassinerviis huc certe pertinet (C. Mueller), from authoritative specimens, by the thecas twinned, by the leaves with thick nerves certainly belongs to this place [i.e. here, i.e. with Fissidens osmundioides].

- Brid. I. p. 6. e spec. anth. herb. Brid. Sph. cymbifilii typus! (C. Mueller), Bridel [volume] I, [page] 6. from an antheridial specimen [from] Bridel’s herbarium, the type of Sph. cymbifolii.

- e spec. Hb. Schkuhriani! (C. Mueller), from a specimen of the Schkuhrian Herbarium [! which I have seen].

- Sph. denticulatum Brid. I. p. 10. e spec. Hb. Brideliani pessimis! (C. Mueller), Sphagnum denticulatum Brid. I p. 10 from a very bad specimen of the Bridelian Herbarium [! = which I have examined].

- e spec. Sendtnerianis peristomio, ut videtur, obsoleto (C. Mueller), from Sendtnerian specimens with the peristome, apparently, poorly developed.

NOTE: the abbreviation spec. is more often used of ‘species.’

 

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