- dictyophlebius, with netted veins; oligophlebius, with few veins; parallelophlebius, with parallel veins; pentaphlebius, 5-veined; polyphlebius, with many veins; xanthophlebius, with yellow veins.

- folia minora uninervia v. reticulato-pennivenia, nunc 0 (B&H), leaves smaller, one-nerved or reticulately-pinnately veined, sometimes none.

NOTE: without perceptible veins: avenis,-e (adj.B), avenius,-a,-um (adj.A); enervis,-e (adj.B), enervius,-a,-um (adj.A).

NOTE: venatus,-a,-um (part.A) = past participle of venor, l., a deponent verb meaning to hunt, hence it is not used to indicate 'veined'.
veined: see venosus,-a,-um (adj.A); see nerved.

 

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