A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
Subseries, a subdivisional rank above species: subseries,-ei (s.f.V), abl.sg. subserie; the epithet in the name of a subsection or lower subdivision of a genus is preferably a plural adjective (Article 21.3); see subgeneric epithets;

         subseries,-ei (s.f.V),
         sg.                  pl.
  Nom. subseries (s.f.V)       subseries
  Gen. subseriei               subserierum
  Acc. subseriem               subseries
  Dat. subseriei               subseriebus
  Abl. subserie                subseriebus
The PLURAL adjective should agree in GENDER with the generic name. Gender refers to masculine, feminine and neuter. The plural adjective is the recommended word form for ranks below subgenus and below section and is thus recommended for the rank of subsection, series and subseries (Article 21.2).

NOTE: All legitimate Latin or Latinized adjectives may be used as subgeneric epithets whether or not they are used as species epithets.

- ad subseriem Esculentos sepalis superioribus persistentibus pertinens, belonging to the subseries Esculenti by the persistent upper sepals.

- subseries nova a subserie Laxiglumis distincta, new subsection distinct from the subsection Laxiglumi.

NOTE: a noun used to describe another, and denoting the same person or thing, agrees with it in case: e.g. above: subserie (abl.) and Laxiglumis (abl.) even though one is a singular and the other a plural noun.

Hypothetical examples might include genus Cyperus, subseries Rotundi, subseries Refracti, subseries Lancastrienses, subseries Filiculmes, subseries Sphaerici.

 

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