Presumably this class is referred by some author as the "propodeum".

alternative definition added about 10 years ago by Istvan Miko
An area where a great deal of fusion between sclerites has taken place, often resulting in extremely reduced forms in more derived eucoilines. Within the Zaeucoilini, gaps are often present at the anterior margin of the metapleuron (at its junction with the mesopleuron); these are the anterior impressions of the metepimeron (dorsal gap) and metepisternum (ventral gap).
