A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
Verruca,-ae (s.f.I), abl.sg. verruca: wart, wart-like, outgrowth or swelling;

- verrucis bubalinis vel flavis pyramidalibus ornatus; ornamented with buff or yellow pyramidal warts.

- at verrucae fructificationi haud inservientes, but the verrucae are not serving in fructification.

- [moss] sed ciliae basis calyptrae vel papillae s. verrucae superficiei nullius momenti sunt (C. Mueller), but the cilia of the bottom of the calyptra, or the papillae [s. = seu, ‘or’] verrucae of the surface are of trifling importance.

NOTE: callus,-i (s.n.II), q.v., “a hardened part; anything which has acquired unusual hardness and toughness. Also used in the sense of verruca” (Lindley).

 

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