Thread subject: Diptera.info :: What are Brustseiten?
Posted by John Carr on 25-02-2020 15:15
I am trying to understand Becker's 1912 German language revision of North American Chloropidae. Can "Brustseiten" be translated simply as "pleura" or does the word refer to a specific group of sclerites? Does it include the sternopleura? A couplet with "Sternopleuralfleck gelbrot" leads into another "Brustseiten ganz fleckenlos". Perhaps the Brustseiten are only the anepisternum and anepimeron in modern terminology.
