A linear groove on a sclerite that is external indication of the line of fusion of two formerly separate sclerites, but more often is used imprecisely as a synonym of sulcus.

I leave this term in the HAO because it the label is used by many people in this sense despite the Snodgrass 1963. I strongly agree with him in that"The only true anatomical sutures are those made by surgeons"

Suture should be retained for grooves margin the line of fusion of two formerly distinct plates. Grooves with a purely functional function are called sulci.

any of the external grooves of the body wall forming internal cuticular inflections, or any narrow membranous areas between sclerites
