- verum L. hastatum Desv. testibus insuper Kunze et Wright, true L. hastatum, moreover, by the witness of (according to) (both) Kunze and Wright (Stearn 1983).

- postea vero divisione longitudinali in binas dividuntur, afterwards divided into two by a genuine longitudinal division.

- vera sese ostia seminis emissioni destinata, nec spuria ex ipsa gelatina seminifera appendicula esse confirmant (S&A), proven to be true ostia in themselves intended for the emission of a seed, not false appendages composed from the seminiferous gelatine itself.

- Vera biologia nititur perfecta anatomica cognitione organorum quorum opere vita peragitur. (DozyMoek), true biology rests upon complete anatomical knowledge or the organs by the work of which life is accomplished.

- [Cephalozia serriflora] distinctissima et secundum descriptionem datam vera J. catenula, plane alia planta est (Lindberg), [a] very distinct [species] and according to the description given for genuine J. catenula, it is plainly a different plant.

- [moss] Ex iconibus CI. Schwägricheni supra laudatis Entosthodon verus esse videtur (C. Mueller), from the recommended pictures of the eminent Schwägrichen above, it seems to be a real Entosthodon.

NOTE:. occasionally an epithet does not derive from this adjective, as “verae” in Actinocephalus verae Sano & Trovóis is in honor of Prof. Dr. Vera Lucia Scatena, a specialist of the Eriocaulaceae; verae = gen. sing.

 

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