Transverse suture

Definition

Figure 4. A groove extending across the dorsal surface of the thorax in front of the wing bases. In some Nematocera it is V-shaped or U-shaped. Whether or not it is visible and distinct right across the thorax or is indistinct or absent towards the mid-line is an important feature in distinguishing Calyptrates from Acalyptrates.
