What's the Preferred Term - 4/11/2011

Recap from last week: For the class "HAO:0000945: The anatomical space that serves as the storage of sperm" (applied to the structure for female sperm storage), we have chosen "spermatheca" as the preferred term as per at least one response. For the second class, "HAO:0000164: The process that is linear and wider apically than distally" we had an interesting discussion about the actual validity of the class definition and also whether there should be more classes applied to different structures (e.g. a true "bar", a true "trabecula" and the entire H-shaped structure in Mymaridae "trabecula?"). We will need to further clarify these classes, but until then we will hold off on assigning preferred terms.

For this week:

ID: HAO:0000154


DEFINITION: The sclerite that is located between the unguitractor and the bases of claws.

TERM OPTIONS: auxilia, auxiliar sclerite, auxilium



ID: HAO:0000526


DEFINITION: The ocellus that is located medially on the cranium.

TERM OPTIONS: anterior ocellus, medial ocellus, median ocellus


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