- PIRULA ('PIRULUS') J.W. Snow
Bot. Gaz. 51: 363.
T. See Pirula gemmata J.W. Snow 1911
[Pirulus corrected to Pirula, Bot. Gaz. 53: 347. 1912. Cells are pear-shaped, so the name is intended to be a diminutive. Pirus [=pear tree] or pira [vulgar latin, pear fruit] are feminine, so the appropriate nominative ending would be "-ula". I think that this is correctable without reference to the published correction.]
