review definition added over 10 years ago by Andrew Ernst
Rename the muscle and redefine the definition! And if this bridge connects in all Hymenoptera the two valvifers, that means that the two valvifers are actually compose just one sclerites. So are they areas or sclerites?

alternative definition added over 10 years ago by Andrew Ernst
The weakly scleritized connection between the paired second valvifers at the posteriodorsal corners, where the ninth abdominal tergo-median bridge of the second valvifal muscle muscle inserts.
