alternative definition added about 8 years ago by Kelly Dew
The horizontal sulcus that is situated posteriorly on the lateral surface of the mesopectus, and that corresponds internally to the mesopleural apodeme, which is the site of origin of the mesopleuro-mesocoxal and the second mesopleural-metanotal muscles. The mesopleural scrobe is likely to be a short remnant of the primitive mesopleural sulcus defining the boundary between the mesepisternum and the mesepimeron.
