English term or phrase: Flat Females
Prezados Colegas,
Gostaria de saber a melhor tradução, do inglês para português, da expressão "flat females" (no caso, fêmeas de carrapatos), no seguinte contexto:
"Diferentiation: Males, FLAT FEMALES, semi-engorging females and engorged females."
Descobri que "semi-engorging and engorged females" são fêmeas semi-ingurgitadas e ingurgitadas. Será que, neste caso, eu deveria traduzir "flat females" como fêmeas não ingurgitadas? Alguém confirma ou tem alguma idéia melhor?
Agradeço, desde já, sua valiosíssima ajuda!!!

Explanation:
The term flat refers to how these ticks look, before they have taken a meal. A literal translation would be "chatas", as opposed to "plenas de sangue". However, I think your detective work has led to a more technical interpretation of the term, which is very satisfactory.
