Veining, “the manner in which veins are arranged” (Lindley): nervatura,-ae (s.f.I), abl. sg. nervatura; nervatio,-onis (s.f.III), abl. sg. nervatione; venatio,-onis (s.f.III), abl. sg. venatione; see network;

- anastomosis (cross-connection of veins forming network): anastomosis,-is (s.f.III), abl. sg. anastomose

- area between veins: intervenium,-ii (s.n.II), abl. sg. intervenio.

- area enclosed by veins or veinlets, vein-islet: areola (-ae, s.f.I).

- midrib (central or main vein): costa,-ae (s.f.I); nervus (s.m.II) medius (adj.A), ‘middle nerve or vein,’ abl. sg. nervo medio; nervus centralis (adj.B), abl. sg. nervo centrali, ‘central nerve or vein.’

- [dat. sg. caryopsis] Genus Bromo (Ceratochloae) affine, sed glumarum forma et venatione distinctum videtur et verisimiliter etiam ovario caryopsique glabris (B&H), the genus is related to Bromus (Ceratochloa), but seems distinct by the form of the glumes and the venation, and perhaps also by the ovary and caryopsis glabrous.

NOTE: nervura,-ae (s.f.I): “nervure, the principal veins of a leaf” (Jackson); syn. nerve, q.v.

 

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