Remarks

From one of Burman's synonymy citation (Polypodium indium, scolopendriae facie), it seems that he derived the epithet scolopendria (feminine noun in nominative) from scolopendriae (feminine noun in genitive). Otherwise, he was consistent with his neuter adjectival epithet endings in Polypodium.
