A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
turgidus,-a,-um (adj.A): inflated, swollen with air or water, slightly swelling; “swollen, or tightly drawn, said of a membrane or covering expanded by pressure from within” (Fernald 1950); cf. distentus,-a,-um (part.A), inflatus,-a,-um (part.A), swollen; opp. wilted, q.v.;

- caulis turgidissimus foliosus robustus, stem very swollen, leafy, strong.

- fructus loculi vacui turgidi, introrsum contigui (B&H), the locules of the fruit empty, swollen, internally touching (contiguous).

- siliqua brevis, turgida, gibba, rostro late linguiformi (B&H), silique short, inflated, gibbous [i.e. hunch-backed], with a beak broadly tongue-shaped.

- semina túrgida statu casso tantum visa, qua re genus dubium remanet (F. Mueller), seeds swollen, with only the empty state seen, for which reason the genus remains dubious.

Aulacomnium turgidum, a moss, "refers to a stout, swollen appearance (fat and wormlike when dry)" (Crum & Anderson 1981).

 

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