Upper calypter, according to Tschorsnig & Herting.

Is Tschorsnig & Herting a dictionary?

Re: Help required

It is a highly respected treatment of the Tachinidae of central Europe, but there is a detailed glossary of terms in the introductory section. It is entirely in German, though, so you need a reasonable grasp of the language to understand the definitions. I think it is freely available online although I don't have a note of the link. I believe there is also an English translation somewhere but that presumably doesn't quote the original German terms.

The Tachinid Recording Scheme site has a link to download the original and also the subsequent English translation
