A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
succubus,-a,-um (adj.A): succubous, i.e. obliquely inserted on the stem so that the leaf-edge nearest the shoot-tip is overlapped by and covered by the lower edge of the leaf above (Stearn); “the oblique insertion of distichous leaves of Hepaticae, so that the upper overlaps the lower on the dorsal side of the stem, as in Plagiochila” (Jackson) [> L. succubo,-are, 1. to lie under]; cf. incubus,-a,-um (adj.A);

- folia leniter succuba pauca brevia valde oblique inserta, leaves lightly succubous, few short strongly obliquely inserted.

- insertio folii dorsali modice succuba, with the dorsal insertion of the leaf moderately succubous.

- insertione folii in dimidio dorsali distincte succuba, with the leaf insertion in the dorsal half distinctly succubous.

 

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