A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
withering: arescens,-entis (part.B) 'becoming dry, wilting;'

marcescens,-entis (part.B): withering but not falling off, hence dry and persistent, as the mature petals in some Hypericum spp.;

not quite withering, beginning to wither; viescens,-entis (part.B)

'withering, shriveling;' see wilting, wrinkling;

- fructus maturitate calyce marcescenti muniti, fruits when mature protected by the marchescent calyx.

withering: arescens,-entis (part.B) 'becoming dry, wilting;' marcescens,-entis (part.B), withering but not falling off, hence dry and persistent, as the mature petals in some Hypericum spp.;

not quite withering, beginning to wither; viescens,-entis (part.B) 'withering, shriveling;' see wilting, wrinkling; opp. swelling (verb), q.v.;

- fructus maturitate calyce marcescenti muniti, fruits when mature protected by the marchescent calyx.

- capsula oblonga, corolla, marcescente inclusa (B&H), capsule oblong, enclosed within the withering corolla.

- petala 8, marcescentia, petals 8, withering; petala saepe marcescenti-persistentia, petals often withering-persistent.

NOTE: emarcescens,-entis (part.B) and emarcidus,-a,-um (adj.A) suggest withering but not necessarily persistent: said of ‘dried’ specimens or those that have shriveled up.

NOTE: marcor,-oris (s.m.III), abl. sg. marcore: a withering; “wilting, or flaccidity caused by loss of water” (Lindley).

 

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