What's the Preferred Term - 4/25/2011

Recap from last week: For the first definition, "HAO:0001358: The pit that corresponds with the mesopleural apodeme", Fernández-Triana and Jennings both agreed that "mesopleural pit" is the most clear and accurate term for that class. For the other class, "HAO:0000735: The carina that is located laterally on the propodeum" there was much discussion regarding the identity of the class (in relation to other carinae on the propodeum of Ichneumonoidea and Chalcidoidea), but otherwise the term "plica" was chosen as the preferred one.

For this week:

DEFINITION: The sclerite that is located distally of the gonostipes.

TERM OPTIONS: distal segment of gonopod, dististyle, gonoharpe, gonosquama, gonostylus, harpe, harpes, harpide, palette, paramere, squama, telomere
