Abelian Grape

The plural of "series" is... annoying.

<geek flavor="linguist">

I wish to register my dissatisfaction with "series" as its own plural. It always makes me do a double-take. And of course "serieses" is an abomination. Anyone know what the proper Latinate pluralization would be, along the "criterion / criteria, bacterium / bacteria" model? Something like "seriae"?
