None reported to me had the sort of general coverage I had in mind.

Other glossaries are:

Bryological at:
Vascular plants at:
Roots of botanical names at:
botanical in Dutch at:
Natural history glossaries:

None of the above was computer searchable, or mind-blowingly
comprehensive. I hope there are others unreported out there and
certainly expected more.

Instead of hitting the web  I can only echo the advice I was given that
browsing in  "Composition of scientific words" ( R W. Brown, 1954, 1978,
882p) would be more rewarding.

Thank you those few who took an interest.
