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

Recap from last week: For the class "HAO:0000109: The frontal line that is a carina", Jennings suggested that the homonym "frontal carina" be with the class "HAO:0000810: The carina that is located on the face and parallels the inner orbit"; thus we have made "central keel" the preferred term for the former class. No decisions were made about "HAO:0000916: The depression that is medially located on the scutoscutellar suture" thus the current term, "scutellar fovea", remains as the preferred one.

For this week:

ID: HAO:0000164


DEFINITION: The process that is linear and wider apically than distally.

TERM OPTIONS: bar, trabecula



ID: HAO:0000945


DEFINITION: The anatomical space that serves as the storage of sperm.

TERM OPTIONS: receptaculum seminis, spermatheca

- ARE THERE terms that we are missing for these concepts?
