What's the Preferred Term - 2/7/2011

Recap from last week: For the first class, two suggested preferred terms were selected: Broad selected "postpectal carina", while Ohl preferred "precoxal carina (of mesopleuron)". Since the "precoxal carina" part is a homonym of " HAO:0001324 - The carina that delimits dorsally the precoxal sulcus" we have chosen to use "postpectal carina" (which is prevalent in ichneumonoid and chalcidoid literature). For the second class, no responses were sent, thus we will retain our preferred label "gaine" for "The anatomical cluster composed of the second valvifer and the third valvula."

For this week:

ID: HAO:0000312


DEFINITION: The anatomical cluster that is composed of the cupula, gonostyle, volsella and the aedeagus.

TERM OPTIONS: armatura genitalis, copulatoria, copulatory apparatus, external male genitalia, genital apparatus, genital appendage, genital armature, genital capsule, genital organ, genitalia, male copulatory organ, paramere, parameres, phallic apparatus, phallus
