Versura,-ae (s.f.I)), also volsura,-ae (s.f.I): ploughed, as fields, “the turning-place, turn at the end of a furrow” (Lewis & Short); a revolving, turning raound, rotating; “the point of turning at which something changes direction, an angle, bend” (Glare); an angle, corner; “the process of passing through a cycle of changes” (Glare) [> L. verto]; see field;

- in agris versuris et oleraceis Europae occid. et austr (DeCandolle), in ploughed and vegetable fields of western [occidentalis] and southern [australis] Europe.

- [Gymnopodes collinus; fungi] in graminosis sicciusculis, pratis, pascuis, versuris, coelo madido frequens (S&A), in grassy, somewhat dry places, meadows, pastures, ploughed fields, frequent in moist weather.

- loca diligit affinium more aprica graminosa, pascua, prata, versuras: at in dumosis quoque umbrosis hinc illinc invenitur, subgregarius , antecedenti contemporalis (S&A), it prefers, according to the ways of its relations, open, grassy places, pastures, meadows, ploughed places: and also in shady spiney thickets here and there it is found.

- solitarius, sed tempestate humida perfrequens, non sylvas tantum acerosas frondosasque, verum et graminea aprica, versuras, pascua, imo arva, passim incolit Aprili et Maio (S&A), solitary, but very frequent in humid weather, not only does it everywhere inhabit acerose [i.e. evergreen] but also frondose [i.e. leafy or deciduous] forests, but also in fact grassy open [places, sc. loca], ploughed fields, pastures, certainly arable fields. In April and May.

 

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