 +====== Sensu stricto ======
 +===== Definition =====
 +In the narrow sense. The Latin names applied to insects often go through a process of refinement over time. //Sensu stricto// (//s.s//.) is used to denote that the most restricted (often the latest) interpretation is meant. For example, the genus //Tipula// has been divided into many subgenera. One might refer to "//Tipula s.s.//" meaning just species placed in the subgenus //Tipula// - i.e. excluding those in other subgenera.
