alternative definition added over 9 years ago by Istvan Miko
A ridge, distinct from the pronotal plate, running from the dorsolateral corner of the pronotum ventrally to near the fore coxa; taxa possessing this feature often appear to have a large pronotal plate. This character is common in Diglyphosemini. The actual pronotal plate is quite small and this carina should not be confused with the lateral margin of the true pronotal plate.
