Phalangodus Coda

Phalangodus sp. (from Colombia). Male habitus in dorsal view. The red area shows the coda. Photo: Villarreal M.O.

Coda (from Latin coda = “tail”) is the posterior part of dorsal scutum, recognizable as the part with parallel straight sides, posterior to the main slope-change caused by the widened convex laterals. This term was first used and defined by Kury (2012)[1].
