A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
vero (adv.): certainly, q.v., assuredly, in truth, truly, in fact, exactly, surely, really, honestly; without doubt; certainly, indeed; may include ironic or adversarial connotations [> L. verus,-a,-um (adj.A), true]; see truly;

- species proxima Ilici kunthianae Triana, sed differt vero: ramulis junioribus teretibus, the species is nearest Ilex kunthiana Triana, but it differs assuredly by the younger branchlets terete.

- numerus staminum semper mihi quinarius; Jacquino inconstans; in speciminibus vero ex nova Caledonia, flores aliquot decandros observavi (Swartz), the number of the stamens with me is always in fives: inconsistent with Jacquinus; in specimens really from New Caledonia, I have observed flowers some decandrous [i.e. ten-stamened].

- [alga] rami ramlulique interdum vagi, saepius vero oppositi, & subverticillati, (Agardh), the branches and branchlets sometimes ill-defined, more often truly [i.e. without doubt] opposite and nearly verticillate.

- Psychotriis próxima, differt vero praeter inflorescentiam, quae semper racemosa, figura corollae, bacca & seminibus (Swartz), it is nearest to the Psychotrias, it most assuredly differs except for the inflorescence, which is always racemose, by the appearance of the corolla, the berry and the seeds.

- descriptio quam dedit Ill. JACQUIN (amer.234.) bona, cui vero addere licet sequentes circa characterem animadversiones (Swartz), the description which the most eminent Jacquin (amer. 234) gave was a good one, [with which] one may with certaintly truly augment the following observations concerning the character.

- habitu, statione, tempore &c. Dianthera quidem a Justicia quodammodo differt, charactere vero floris essentiali omnino convenit, ideoque inter Justicias collocanda (Swartz), at least by the habit, station [i.e. habitat], season &c., Dianthera differs in a certain way from Justicia, yet certainly by the essential character of the flower it thoroughly agrees, therefore it is to be placed among the Justicias.

 

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