Not exactly.

Abbreviation of/cōnfer <https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/confer#Latin>/, 
imperative of/cōnferō <https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/confero#Latin>/, 
<https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/fero#Latin>/(“(I) bring”).

see also https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cf. for application in biology, 
and also citing Bengtson.
