alternative definition added over 9 years ago by Istvan Miko
The last or posteriormost of the three main body regions of an insect. In chalcids, like other apocritan Hymenoptera, the first 'true' abdominal segment (see propodeum) is rigidly attached to the thorax and there is a more or less flexible articulation between this fused segment and the 'apparent abdomen', which in chalcids is usually termed the metasoma or gaster.

alternative definition added about 10 years ago by Istvan Miko
The principal posterior division of the body, posterior to the leg-bearing segments and composed of 10 or fewer apparent segments; in most Symphyta abdominal segment 1 is easily recognized by its median split (cf. metasoma, propodeum).

Tagma that contains most or all of the systems of digestion and reproduction. In ants, the abdomen is formed by seven visible abdominal segments (A1 to A7) and some of them are highly modified.
