The area that is located dorsally on the mesopleuron, is delimited posteriorly by the mesepimeral ridge and posteroventrally by the mesopleural scrobe and corresponds to the site of origin of the dorsal mesopleuro-mesofurcal muscle.

The definition has been corrected from "The area that is located dorsally on the mesopleuron, is delimited posteriorly by the mesepimeral ridge and corresponds to the site of origin of the dorsal mesopleuro-mesofurcal muscle."
