What's the Preferred Term - 2/28/2011

Apologies for missing last week's WTPT post.

Recap from 2 weeks ago: We did not get any responses for either term, so we will keep the current preferred terms: "HAO:0000942: The sclerite that is unpaired and located just dorsally of the basal part of the aedeagus in some Aculeata" we chose the term "spatha"; "HAO:0001027: The line that traverses the mesoscutum between the antemedian and postmedian wing processes." we chose the term "transcutal line".

For this week:

ID: HAO:0001098


DEFINITION: Mushroom-shaped sensory structure on the flagellum, particularly the clava; sometimes called the sensilla ampullacea.

TERM OPTIONS: basiconic capitate peg sensillum, capitate peg sensillum, sensilla ampullacea



ID: HAO:0000427


DEFINITION: The compound organ that functions as producer and transporter of sperm, spermatophore and semen, composed of the testes, vas deferens, accessory glands and ductus ejaculatorius. Ecto- and mesodermal in origin.

- WHAT TERMS (from the above options) would you use to refer to these concepts?
- ARE THERE terms that we are missing for these concepts?

If you would like to reply to the questions above or have comments, questions, suggestions, etc., please sign up for the HAO email list and post your views there. We will not be moderating WTPT discussions here on the blog.
