A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
xanthellus,-a,-um (adj.A), xanthicus,-a,-um (adj.A), xanthinus,-a,-um (adj.A): yellowish, tending to a yellowish color;

- species prae omnibus colore xanthino florum insignis(F.Mueller), a species before all remarkable for the xanthine color of the flowers.

Xanthisma,-atis (s.n.III), abl. sg. Zanthismate, a genus of plants with yellow flowers; X. gracile, X. gypsophilum, X. junceum, X. coloradense, X. glaberrimum; note that Stearn (1996) indicated that this genus is feminine. In the Index to Plant Names there occur epithets in both neuter and feminine. What the original gender of this genus is has not been determined here. DeCandolle is the original author and he is the authority for X. texanum, so presumably the author originally published the genus as a neuter noun.

 

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