The gula is absent from Hymenoptera. The sclerotised area between the oral and occipital foramina might either postgenal (postgenal bridge) or hypostomal (hypostomal bridge) in origin. See more detailes in Vilhelmsen, L. B. 1999. The occipital region in the basal Hymenoptera (Insecta): a reappraisal. Zoologica Scripta 28:75-85.
