- praeterea, Subordo secundus, Acerineae, a nobis potius pro tribu quam Subordine habendus est (B&H), moreover, the second Suborder, Acerineae, by us is to be taken rather for a tribe than a Suborder.

Note: the nom. singular and plural are both tribus, as is the genitive singular and the accusative plural.

Note: the spelling of the dative and ablative plural is not tribibus, as in other words of Decl.IV, but tribubus; nor is it masculine, as is typical of this declension.

- tribus nova genus Withaniam et genera propinqua comprendit (comprehendit), the new subtribe embraces (includes) the genus Withania and neighboring genera.

- genus novum ab aliis generibus tribus Triticearum possessione haplomatum quatuor (St,Y,H, et W) differt, new genus differs from other genera of the tribe Triticeae by the possession of four haplomes (St, Y, H and W).

Note: tribus is also the dative and ablative plural of ‘tres,tria’, ‘three;’ see ‘three;’

- (moss) sporangium e partibus tribus essentialibus compositum (C. Mueller), the sporangium is composed of three fundamental parts.
