What's the Preferred Term - 4/19/2011

Recap from last week: For the first term, Burks argued that "purely linguistic grounds suggest that auxilium is
best. Auxilia is the plural, and I don't see why the extra word "sclerite" would be needed", so we will use the term "auxilium" to describe the sclerite. For the second term, both Jennings and Burks agreed that "anterior ocellus" is too relative with regards to head direction, etc. The term "median ocellus" was deemed the most accurate, thus we will use it as the preferred label.
