A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
Tantillum,-i (s.n.II), abl. sg. tantillo: just a little bit, so very little, so little a thing, such a little thing, such a trifle;

- [Ryanaea] Nomen tantillum mutavi ne confundatur cum Riana (DeCandolle), I have altered the name a little bit lest it be confused with [the genus] Riana.

- capsula erecta ovato-cylindrica, vaginula vix longior, sub ore tantillum constricta, foliis perichaetii immersa absconditaque, capsule erect ovate-cylindric scarcely longer than the vaginule, below the mouth just a little constricted, by the leaves of the perichaetium covered and concealed (Stearn).

- plantae quum immaturae tantilla, plants when immature such little things.

- capsula erecta ovato-cylindrica, sub ore tantillum constricta. capsule erect, ovate-cylindric, below the mouth just a little constricted.

- prorulae tantillae tantae ut saepe non descriptae sunt, prorulae so very little things that they are often not described.

- sphaerulae atrae, laeviusculae, tantillum rugulosae vel minutissime granulosae (S&A), sphaerules dull black, somewhat smooth, just a little bit rugulose or very minutely granulose.

- [fungi] [figure] 2. plantula tantillum provectior, contractionem baseos inchoans; naturali magnitudine (Hedwig), the small plant a little bit more advanced, beginning a contraction of the base; at natural size.

- [fungus] color albidus, quandoque tantillum flavescens aut subvirescens — excepto pilei margine, initio pallido guttato, dein rufescente sublateritio (S&A), the color whitish, now and then a little bit yellowish or nearly greenish - except at the margin of the pileus, at first pale, guttate, then reddish, nearly brick-red.

 

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