Notaulus is a line, because it could be manifested as a carina, sulcus, row of setae or even the border between two differently colored areas.

Paired stucture of the mesoscutum, ranging from a deep, continuous or slightly punctate line to a very shallow, mere indication of a line extending from the anterior to the posterior margin of the mesoscutum. In taxa with a reduced notauli, only the anterior and posterior ends are visible. Notauli have also been referred to as parapsidal grooves (e.g. Weld, 1952). Absent in Zaeucoilini, notauli are common within the Diglyphosemini.

Paired lines or grooves on the mesoscutum that subdivide the sclerite into a median midlobe and lateral lobes; the notauli, if present, usually originate anteriorly near each mesothoracic spiracle and converge posteriorly, often ending near the inner angles of the axillae if they extend to the transscutal articulation. The notauli are external indications of internal phragmata that separate the dorsolongitudinal and dorsoventral flight muscles (see also parapsidal line).

The usually oblique longitudinal groove on the mesoscutum, often dividing the mesoscutum into medial and lateral parts.

The pair of posteriorly converging lines on the mesoscutum, which correspond to the site of origin of the first mesopleuro-mesonotal muscle and divides the mesoscutum into one medial and two lateral lobes. Sometimes incorrectly termed "parapsidal furrows".
