SuffixEdit

-ara f sg

  1. (taxonomy) Used to form the name of nothogenera, in particular for orchids

Usage notesEdit

  • The suffix is often appended to names of persons.
  • This suffix is mostly used when the number of genera making up the nothogenus is high enough, such that the nothogenus name cannot be formed by combining the individual genus names.
