The question is, that should we use the class scrobe for something, that is touching the accomodated structure only just the part of it entire surface?

alternative definition added about 10 years ago by Istvan Miko
Term often used for an anteroventrally differentiated portion of the mesepisternum that lies under the procoxa and behind and below the prepectus, though rarely used for the ventral portion of the prepectus between the ventral surfaces of the prothorax and mesothorax. In either sense the epicnemium is not homologous with the epicnemium of sawflies (Symphyta) and is an analogous region to similar looking regions in other Apocrita.
