What's the Preferred Term - 3/28/2011

Recap from last week: For the first class, "The seta that is located on the anterior margin of the hind wing and interlocks with the recurved posterior edge of the fore wing in Hymenoptera during flight, making them functionally one winged", Schulmeister and Jennings both chose "hamulus (hamuli)" a choice that surely surprised no one in the community. As for the second class, "The malar line that is a carina", no one gave their opinion so we will keep "malar carina" as the preferred term.

For this week:

DEFINITION: The frontal line that is a carina.

TERM OPTIONS: central keel, frontal carina

HOMONYM NOTES: "frontal carina" is also used for the classes "HAO:0000810: The carina that is located on the face and parallels the inner orbit" and "HAO:0001533: The carina that extends along the lateral margin of the intertorular area (median margin of the antennal foramen) towards the vertex".
