redundantly many terms for each color used in the names?

Red = rubri, rufus, russ, cinnabarinus, hematopus
Orange/yellow = aurantiacus, xantho, chryso, flavida
Green = virescens, verd, olivascens
Blue = caeruleus, indigo
Purple = violaceus, purpurascens
Black = melano, sordidus
White = alba, leuca, pallidosa

Grey with just “griseo” seems to be the main exception.

Red/orange/yellow are particularly loaded with latinate synonyms.

found in mixed pine oak sage brush, I believe these are diliciosus
