Definition from own experience or research:
I checked with a friend of mine who works for a regional newspaper and he says they always use the term 'botsende koppen' but he has also heard 'stuitende koppen' being used. However, I have Googled both with zero results... hope this helps!
(this is the first time I post an answer to a terminology question here; hope I'm doing it right... ;-))
