Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorGrammatical gender The botanical generic name Dianthus (flower of Zeus) is neo-Latin (Linnaeus and earlier) from Greek Δηοσ (Dios), genitive of Zeus, and ανθος (anthos) ‘flower’. As Serpula is feminine and dianthus is masculine it seems Verrill intended the name as a noun, thus it is invariant for gender. [details]
