A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
Synnema, in fungi, a group of hyphae, as in the Stilbaceae, sometimes joined together, generally upright and producing spores; coremium is frequently used as a synonym, but sometimes for looser fascicles as in coremioid species of Penicillium and Aspergillus (Ainsworth & Bisby, ed 5); “a columnar bundle of closely united conidiophores (Traverso and Saccardo)” (Jackson); “a coremium having tightly compacted hyphae” (WIII): synnema,-atis (s.n.III), abl. sg. synnemate, nom. & acc. pl. synnemata, dat. & abl. pl. synnematibus [> Gk. syn-, together + nema,-atos (s.n.III), ‘thread,’ in reference to the anther or hyphal filaments];

- hyphis aerialibus vegetativis 5-10 in micro-synnema funiculatum aggregatis, with the aerial vegetative hyphae 5-10 aggregated into a ropy micro-synnema (note synnema in acc. sg. is same as nom. sg.).

- synnemata e fascibus compactis hyphas parallelas continentibus constantia, synnemata of compact bundles containing parallel hyphae composed.

NOTE: not the same as synema, q.v.

NOTE: In the genus Stilbum Tode ex Fr. (Moniliales) “The erect synnema (a ‘stilbum’) has a head of slime spores’ (Ainsworth & Bisby)

Synnema,-atis (s..III): a genus name “in allusion to the united stamens. (Acanthaceae)” (Stearn 1996).

 

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