Dear all,
Thank you so much for your interest. It making me too learn more..

Today's Etymology:

Arachis hypogea

Arachis was the name, among the ancient Greeks, of some leguminous weed, not the peanut. The precise ancient meaning of arachis is unknown but the components of the word suggest that arachis may have been composed of:

/a/ Greek ‘not’ + rachis Greek ‘spine, backbone

The species epithet hypogea refers to underground, subterranean.

Hi all,

just adding for the benefit of all,

The genus name Arachis stems from a-rachis (Greek, meaning without spine) in reference to the absence of erect branches. The specific epithet hypogaea from hupo-gé (Greek, meaning below earth) and relates to the gynophore (flower stalk or peg) that grows downward into the earth so that the pod develops underground.

Refer: http://upetd.up.ac.za/thesis/available/etd-08152003-155125/unrestricted/01chapter1.pdf

Regards,

Stephen...
