Since the mesopleuro-mesosubalar muscle is absent from almost all non-Chalcidoid Hymenoptera, it is not possible to homologize (analogize) this area with areas of the mesopleuron of other Apocritan taxa.

Ventral region of the mesepimeron that is sometimes differentiated from an upper mesepimeron by a transepimeral sulcus.

Ventral region of the mesepimeron that is the site of orign of pl2-sa2, and pl2-3ax3a, if marked dorsally by a change of sculpture, or transepimeral line, sulcus or pit.
