What's the Preferred Term - 2/15/2011

Recap from last week: Last week we had one response for the first preferred term and none for the second. Schulmeister stated "I use external male genitalia and copulatory apparatus and copulatory organ. If Latin, then armatura genitalis", later suggesting "armatura genitalis". We would like to maintain using English terms (as decided in a previous WTPT), so we will use "external male genitalia" for the preferred term for "HAO:0000312: The anatomical cluster that is composed of the cupula, gonostyle, volsella and the aedeagus". For the second term, representing "HAO:0000271: The ridge that is marginal or submarginal, extends along the dorsal margin of the propleuron and serves as the site of origin of the lateral propleuro-postoccipital muscle" we have chosen "dorsal propleural ridge".
