The metascutellum excludes the metascutellar arm, therefore not serially homologous with the mesoscutellum.

The central, usually convex median portion of the metanotum that is differentiated from the more concave lateral panel of the metanotum.

The middle region of the metanotum. In Apocrita, only the mesoscutellum is evident and is simply called the scutellum, whereas in symphyta both the mesoscutellum and metascutellum are present.
