Umbrella, parasol, sunshade: umbraculum,-i (s.m.II), abl. sg. umbraculo, q.v.; umbrella,-ae (s.f.I), abl. sg. umbrella.

Cynosciadium > Gk. from cyon, a dog + sciadion, a sunshade, "a fanciful designation referring to the umbels" (Fernald 1950); Sciadopitys,-yis (s.f.III), Umbrella Pine from Gk. skias,-ados, umbel + pitys, a pine or fir tree. "The spreading whorls of needles resemble the ribs of an umbrella or parasol, for which the Greek name was skiadeion" (Stearn 1996).

Sciadopitys verticillata, Sieb. & Zucc., “leaves of two kinds, one small, scale-like ... bearing in their axils whorls of linear flat leaves” (Bailey 1949).
