A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
Vallecula,-ae (s.f.I), abl.sg. vallecula, nom.pl. valleculae, acc. pl. valleculas, dat. & abl.pl. valleculis: “the channels or furrows lying between the ridges upon the fruit of Umbelliferae” (Lindley); furrow between ridges (juga) on fruits of Umbelliferae; a little valley, a glen or dell (dim. of vallis);

- valleculae in quoque carpello 4, furrows on each carpel 4.

- vittae ad valleculas angustas solitariae, vittae solitary in the narrow furrows.

- valleculis univittatis, with furrows having one vitta (Stearn 1983).

- fructu oblongo, jugis obtusis, valleculis 3-vittatis, stylis deflexis stylopodio incumbentibus eoque paulo longioribus (Boissier), with the fruit oblong, with the ridges obtuse, with the valleculae 3-vittate [i.e. bearing 3 vittae], with the styles deflexed, incumbent on the stylopodium and somewhat longer than it.

- mericarpia jugis 5 filiformibus, intermediis duobus aliquando obliteratis, lateralibus marginantibus, valleculis planis evitatis (Boissier), with the mericarps with 5 filiform ridges, the intermediate ones two, occasionally obliterated, the lateral ones forming a border, the furrows flat, lacking vittae.

- nunquam vidimus (ut in Eng. Bot. aliisque locis depictae v. descriptae sunt) vittas sub valleculis 2-3-nas, nec (ut in Ledeb. Fl. Ross. descriptae) approximatas, unicam simulantibus (B&H), we have never seen (as described and depicted in Eng. Bot. and other places) the vittae under the valleculae 2-3-together [in groups of 2 or 3], neither (as described in Ledeb. Fl. Ross.) near together, resembling a single one [‘-nas’ is acc. pl. of vittae].

- [Umbelliferae] fructus jugis longitudinalibus nunc tenuissimis nunc saepius prominulis nerviformibus v. elevatis v. in alas expansis instructus, et interstitiis valleculas dictis notatus (B&H), fruit provided with longitudinal ridges sometimes very thin sometimes, more often, somewhat raised, like a nerve in shape or elevated or expanded into wings, and the marked with the interstices [i.e. spaces in between] called valleculae.

 

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