WHAT DOES PROTHORACIC MEAN IN ENGLISH?
The prothorax is the foremost of the three segments in the thorax of an insect, and bears the first pair of legs. Its principal sclerites are the pronotum, the prosternum, and the propleuron on each side. The prothorax never bears wings in extant insects, though some fossil groups possessed wing-like projections. All adult insects possess legs on the prothorax, though in a few groups the forelegs are greatly reduced. In many groups of insects, the pronotum is reduced in size, but in a few it is hypertrophied, such as in all beetles, in which the pronotum is expanded to form the entire dorsal surface of the thorax, and most treehoppers, in which the pronotum is expanded into often fantastic shapes that enhance their camouflage or mimicry. Similarly, in the Tetrigidae, the pronotum is extended backward to cover the flight wings, supplanting the function of the tegmina.

It is named the H-organ due to its shape, resembling the letter H. It is located in
the prothoracic region between the subesophageal ganglion and prothoracic
ganglion. It is approximately three times smaller than a single prothoracic gland.
