What's the Preferred Term - 6/13/2011

Recap from last post: Jennings suggested the preferred term "metathoracic spiracle" for the class "HAO:0000769: The spiracle that is located dorsally on the border between the mesopectus and the metapectus" so we will provide that accordingly. For the second class "HAO:0001665: The sulcus that is longitudinal and extends posteriorly of the first abdominal spiracle" we had some discussion (initiated by Burks) about the validity of the definition and labels having to do with a sulcus, something that cannot be determined easily for all groups. An agreement was made to possibly substitute "groove" for "sulcus". For now, we will go with Burks' suggestion of using "postspiracular furrow" until a better definition can be achieved.

For this week:

ID: HAO:0000292
