A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
squamulosus,-a,-um (adj.A), squamulatus,-a,-um (adj.A): squamulose, minutely scaley, covered or beset with small scales, minutely squamose; “provided with small scales” (Fernald 1950);

- pileo subcarnoso striato-squamuloso umbilicato e spadiceo nigro (S&A), with the pileus somewhat fleshy, striate-squamulose, umbilicate from ‘a deep reddish-brown’ black.

- stipes subsquamulosus, teres, albus, tenuior (S&A), the stipe somewhat minutely scaly, round-cylindric, white, thinner.

- [fungi] cortice fragili laevi (nec squamuloso) flavo – virente (S&A), with the cortex fragile, smooth (not with minute scales) yellow-green.

- [fungi] pileus obsolete zonatus, squamuloso-fibrillosus , valde rivulosus , disco demuni fere nlger (S&A), the pileus faintly banded, squamulose-fibrillose [i.e. with thin, firm fibers], strongly rivulose [i.e. with fine, irregular grooves].

- [fungi] saepe in uno eodemque individuo hinc prorsus laevis, illinc confertius distantiusve minute et adpresse squamulosus (S&A), often in one and the same individual here [on one side] completely smooth, there [on the other] more densely or more distantly minutely and appressedly squamulose.

- [lichen] thallus fusco-nigrescens squamulosus, firmulus, squamulis margine sinuosis, interdum fere imbricatis, sat parvis, passim noduloso-inaequalibus (Nyl.), the thallus brown-blackish, squamulose, somewhat firm, with the squamules at the margin sinuose, sometimes almost imbricate [i.e. overlapping], quite small, everywhere nodulose-irregular.

- stipes subsquamulosus, teres, albus, tenuior (S&A), the stipe somewhat scaly, round-cylindric, white, thinner.

- [fungi] peridii cortex (duplex, ut videtur — exterus in squamulas furfuraceas solutus) tener est ac pellucens (S&A), the cortex of the peridium (double, it appears – the outer separated into bran-like little scales) is tender and transparent.

- [fungi] peridium dein minute squamulosum (S&A), the peridium in the end minutely squamulose [i.e. covered in tiny scales).

Squamulose lichens, with a thallus composed of often small, flat, massed (confertus), often overlapping (imbricate) scales (squamulae) or lobes lacking a lower cortex (as opp. to smaller foliose lichens): lichen,-enis (s.m.III) thallo squamuloso, abl. sg. lichene thallo squamuloso; lichen squamulosus, abl. sg. lichene squamuloso [lichen, gen. sg. lichenis (s.m.III), acc. sg. lichenem, nom. & acc. pl. lichenes, gen. pl. lichenum, dat. & abl. pl. lichenibus].

[fungus] Diderma squamulosum; [lichen] Acarospora squamulosa = Lichen squamulosus, the thallus with the squamules “round, entire to lobulate, flat to convex, crowded to scattered” (Fink); Psorotichia squamulosa, the thallus composed of “small, tough, dark olive-green to dull black, broadly lobed squamules” (Fink).

 

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