What's the Preferred Term - 1/19/2011

**Starting this week we will be posting 2 WTPT questions at a time. This should hasten our completion of the exercise and expand the subject matter each week to broaden interest.**

Recap from last week: For the concept "The area that is median and located between the notauli" two people (Jennings & Tucker) chimed-in and said they preferred either "medial lobe of mesoscutum", "median mesonotal lobe", or "median mesoscutal lobe". These terms are very similar, but we chose "medial lobe of mesoscutum" since it is published and specific to the mesoscutum (not just mesonotum). However, "lobe" has a particular meaning in the ontology and, for future reference, this should probably be termed an "area".
