Proventrum or prosternum? I have been recently told by a reviewer that
the latter term is somewhat outdated. As far as I can tell prosternum
is the standard, accepted term (Torre-Bueno, Matsuda, Snodgrass...)
and the most commonly used by researchers. Has there been a recent
move to harmonize morphological terminology that I am unfamiliar with?

Best and Happy Holidays
