A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
verticillate (adv.), verticillatim (adv.): verticillately, in a whorled manner.

verticillatus,-a,-um (adj.A): verticillate, whorled; “when several bodies form a ring round a common axis, as leaves round a stem, sepals, petals, and stamens round an ovarium, &c.” (Lindley); (in bryology) whorled (Magill 1990);

- univerticillatus, biverticillatus, triverticillatus, once, twice, thrice verticillate.

Rumex verticillatus L. 'whorled', the whorls of flowers distant to subapproximate on the rhachis.

NOTE: monoverticillatus,-a,-um (adj.A): this word occurs in English as a Greek and Latin hybrid word meaning 'with a single whorl,' as in a seashell; in Latin it is univerticillatus.

verticillato-pinnatisectus,-a,-um (adj.A): “pinnated in such a manner that the leaflets appear to form rings or whorls round the principal petiole” (Lindley).



 

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