What's the Preferred Term - 1/31/2011

Recap from last week: #1 - "Mesosoma" was chosen as the preferred term for the class "HAO:0000576: The tagma that is composed of the prothorax, mesothorax and the metapectal-propodeal complex" by two people (Keller & Ohl). We agree and have made the pertinent changes. #2 - For the class "HAO:0000662: The shortest anatomical line that connects the compound eye and the lateral ocellus" we had no suggestions for a preferred term. Thus, we will choose the preferred term.

For this week:

ID: HAO:0000794


DEFINITION: The carina that delimits anterlaterally the mesocoxal depression.

TERM OPTIONS: postpectal carina, postpectal flange, precoxal carina of mesopleuron, ventral mesopleural carina



ID: HAO:0001100


DEFINITION: The anatomical cluster composed of the second valvifer and the third valvula.

TERM OPTIONS: gaine, legescheide, oblonge platte, s├Ągescheide, sawsheath, scheide
