alternative definition added almost 8 years ago by Katja Seltmann
The second tagma of the ant body, formed by the fusion of the first abdominal segment (the propodeum) with the thorax. It is also called mesosoma. The three pairs of legs and, when present, the two pairs of wings are articulated to the alitrunk.
