What's the Preferred Term - 8/8/2011

Recap from last post: For the first class, "HAO:0000647: The line that extends submedially along the mesoscutum and corresponds to the median border of the site of origin of the first mesopleuro-mesonotal muscle" we had no responses so we will keep "notaulus" as the preferred term. For the second class, "HAO:0001044: The area that is located dorsally of the ventral margin of toruli and ventrally of the anterior ocellus medial to the inner margins of the eye and malar line", Burks and Jennings suggested "frons".

For this week:

CLASS: HAO:0001022: The foramen that is located on the head in which the radicle positioned.


TERM OPTIONS: alveolus, antennal foramen, antennal insertion, antennal socket, torulus

HOMONYM NOTES: "antennal socket" and "torulus" are both also used for the class "HAO:0000103: The rim that surrounds the antennal foramen."


CLASS: HAO:0000362: The anatomical cluster that is composed of flagellomeres located between the pedicel and clava or the distalmost anellus and clava.
