Squamula,-ae (s.f.I), abl.sg. squamula: squamule, a small scale; “the hypogenous scales of Grasses” (Lindley); the hypogynous scale of grasses, the lodicule (Jackson); (ferns) “a minute, reduced, paucicellular scale, found esp. on the axes and/or laminae of certain Cyatheaceae” (Lellinger);

- arbor elata, ramulis angulatis foliisque saepe squamulis cerinis lepidota.(B&H), a tall tree, with angled branchlets, and with the leaves often scaly with waxy yellow [cerine] little scales.

- carpellis 2-4 pube brevi velutinis squamulisve lepidotis (DeCandolle), with the carpels 2-4, with the pubescence short, velvety or scaly with little scales.

- squamulis nectareis carnosis (DeCandolle), with small, fleshy nectareous scales.

- petalis numero aequalia, dupla aut multiplicia, interdum in squammulas nectariferas mutata (DeCandolle), with the petals equal in number, double or multiplied, sometimes changed into nectar-bearing squamules.

- SCIRPÜS. Setae hypogynae 3-8 v. 0, rarius in squamulas lineares plumosas dilatatae (B&H), the hypogynous [i.e. seated below the ovary] bristles 3-8 or none, more rarely dilated into plumose [i.e. feathery], linear squamules.

- [fungi] Stipes laeviusculus, nonnisi, basin versus interdum squamulis distinctioribus adspersus (S&A), the stipe almost smooth, except, toward the base sometimes with more distinctive squamules.

- RANUNCULUS GRAMINEUS L. var luzulaefoliis N. — A typo speciei, vagina fibrillosa caulis stipatiori, squamula petalorum longius latiusque cucullata, recedit. R. buplevroides Brot. Cui indumento foliorum formaque squamulae affinis, differt foliis radicalibas ovatis (Boissier), from the type species it departs by the more dense fibrillose sheath of the stem, by the squamule of the petals longer and wider. R. buplevroides Brot. To which it is related by the indument of the leaves and the form of the squamule differs by the basal leaves ovate.

- [lichen] thallus niger e squamulis constitutus parvis convexis (latit. vix 1 millim.), contiguis vel dispersis; (Nyl.), the thallus [shining] black constituted from squamules, small, convex, scarcely one millimeter, contiguous or dispersed.

- [lichen] apothecia (unicum in quavis squamula thallina) minuta urceolata (Nyl.), the apothecia (growing singly in any thalline scale) minute, urceolate.

NOTE: also the squamella,-ae (s.f.I) in Cyperaceae (B&H);

- FUIRENA [Cyperaceae] squamellae hypogynae 3, latae, saepe stipitatae, interdum cum setis totidem alternantes, rarius minutae v. evanidae (B&H), the hypogynous squamellae 3, broad, often stalked, sometimes just as many alternating with the setae.

Squamulae intervaginales (adj>B): “the axillary scales of Halophila” (Jackson); “squamules found between the leaves of aquatic monocotyledons (Gibson).

 

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