Scutellar bridge: in Diptera, a small ridge on either side of the scutellum, connecting it with the mesonotum.
The bristles which are most distorted are those upon the scutellum, where they are sometimes curled together into balls.
Scutell′iform, scutellate; Scutellig′erous, provided with a scutellum; Scutelliplan′tar, having the back of the tarsus scutellate.
There lies a connecting part between the germ and its food, the scutellum.
Bugs should be pinned through the scutellum, as the small triangular piece between the elytra is called.
The shell is placed under the scutellum of the common garden slug.
Thorax: the scutellum prominent, forming a rounded tubercle, the metathorax elongate and oblique.
It is usually less elevated than the scutellum; in Necrophorus, and some other beetles, however, the latter is most depressed.
In some grasses there is a small scale-like appendage opposite the scutellum, the epiblast.
Thorax anticus valde productus et attenuatus; scutellum bispinosum; metathorax magnus, declivis.
