- pili (pl.m.II) urticantes, stinging hairs; setae (pl.f.I) urticantes, stinging bristles.

- [Cnidoscolus; Euphorbiaceae] Indumentum. Setis urticantibus exceptis planta omnino glaberrima. Setae magnae 4-5 mm, iuxta basim foliorum in vicem glandularum summipetiolarium dispositae (Casas), Indument. The plant completely glabrous with stinging bristles excepted. The bristles large 4-5 mm, deposited beside the base of the leaves in the place of the summipetiolar glands.

- [Cnidoscolus; Euphorbiaceae] folia setis urticantibus exceptis omnino glaberrima (Casas), leaves completely glabrous with the stinging bristles excepted.

- [Cnidoscolus; Euphorbiaceae] glandulae summipetiolares destitutae, nisi si setae urticantes magnae suum locum occupantes eas fingunt (Casas), summipetiolar glands lacking [i.e. absent], except if the large stinging hairs stand for [i.e. represent] them occupying their own [i.e. exact] place.

- [Cnidoscolus; Euphorbiaceae] Indumentum. Setae urticantes magnae atque mediae foliis, regmatibus atque inflorescentiis frequentes (Casas), urticant bristles large and medium [i.e. sized], frequent in the leaves, fruits [i.e. regmata] and inflorescence.

 

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