A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
Vitium,-ii (s.n.II), abl. sg. vitio: an imperfection, blemish, fault, a defect; an error; a mortal fault; a spoiling, ruining, injuring, infecting or infection.

- [fungi] Ustilago segetum (Bull.) Dittm. vars. a, Hordei, b, Tritici c, Avennae, d, Panici [of Hordeum, Triticum, Avena, Panicum]: Omnes hae varr., notissima aeque ac pessima segetum suarum vitia, agricolas male cruciant Aestate. (S&A), all these varieties are most remarkable, equally also they badly torment the farmers as the worst spoiling of their very own crops.

- [moss] eius internum peristomum minime reticulatum est, sed e processibus liberis per paria approximatis constât. Hinc genus illud vitio laborat, (Brid.), its inner peristome is the least reticulate [i.e. not reticulate whatsoever], but is composed of free [i.e. not fused] processes close together in pairs. For this reason, that genus suffers from a defect [i.e. error].

 

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