  • Qualification of a nomenclatural system, the Orostensional Nomenclatural System (OONS), that relies both on onomatophores (conucleogenera) and onomatostases (alienogenera) for the taxonomic allocation of class-series nomina (bidirectional ostension): within a given taxonomic frame, a nomen [1] either applies to the most inclusive taxon, if it exists, that includes all its conucleogenera and excludes all its alienogenera, or [2] is an anaptonym if such a taxon does not exist because of overlapping between the onomatophore and the onomatostasis. (Dubois & Raffaëlli 2012)


  • Etymology: G: ὄρος (oros), limit, frontier - L: ostensio, action of showing.
