--Top of head and scutum
completely dark colored ...
Diagnosis: Median occipital sclerites yellow; scutum
uniformly yellow to yellowish brown; upper frons yellow to brown; hind femora uniformly yellow; wings bicoloured orange at base and blackish at tip, darkening of wing apex reaching discal cell or nearly so; basal 3-4 abdominal segments usually ochre-yellow.
blunting and total ossicular destruction were detected in six ears, wherein the middle ear was completely pneumatized.
He commented that the taxonomic status of Discocyrtus was "sehr unsicher" [very uncertain], since only one female specimen was known and it perhaps belonged to another genus (not yet described?), because it differed from the other species in the femur of pedipalps and the pattern of grooves on the abdominal scutum
Mafee et al17 and David et al19 described the criteria indicating cholesteatoma as blunting of the scutum
's normally sharp tip as often the earliest sign of attic cholesteatoma17,19.
Axial (Image A) and coronal (Image B and C) HRCT images showed as non-dependent soft tissue density lesion in right Prussak's space extending into right epitympanic space after eroding right scutum
. Medial deviation of right ossicular chain was noted without ossicular chain erosion (Thin arrow in Image B).
Erosion or blunting of scutum
is classically seen in attic cholesteatoma.
Just lower right of Aquila's tail is Scutum
, the Shield.
These objects, known as infrared dark clouds, were observed approximately 10,000 light-years away in the direction of the constellations of Aquila and Scutum
BMSA(D)35137, one egg in anterolateral part of right scutum
; 1 [female] same data, BMSA(D)35161, three eggs inserted in left side of body: immediately below wing base (Fig.
One such constellation is Scutum
, which can truly boast objects of wonder to please the eye.
