What's the Preferred Term - 3/7/2011

Recap from last week: We got one response for each of the classes from last week. First, Jennings suggested we use "basiconic capitate peg sensillum" for the class "HAO:0001098: Mushroom-shaped sensory structure on the flagellum, particularly the clava; sometimes called the sensilla ampullacea." Second, Schulmeister suggested a couple of labels for the class "HAO:0000427: 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" including "internal male genitalia" or "internal male reproductive organs". We will use Jennings' selection for the first class, and have continued using "internal male genitalia" for the second class in accordance with Schulmeister's suggestions and our current selection.
