 GEOL 102 Lecture 15: Phylogeny, the Tree of Life
In the above example, Amphibia, Mammalia, Testudines, Lepidosauria, Crocodylia, and Aves are all terminal taxa; Tetrapoda, Amniota, Reptilia, Diapsida, and Archosauria are named nodes.
Two taxa which meet at a node are called sister taxa, and are each other's closest relatives (i.e., they represent the two lineages which diverged from that particular common ancestor).
The ingroup represents the assemblage of taxa of primary interest in any particular study; the outgroup is the sister taxon to the ingroup.

 PhyloCode Article 13   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
(1988) defined the name Lepidosauromorpha as referring to the clade composed of Lepidosauria and all organisms sharing a more recent common ancestor with Lepidosauria than with Archosauria (a stem-based definition).
Laurin (1991) defined the name Lepidosauromorpha as referring to the clade stemming from the most recent common ancestor of Palaeagama, Saurosternon, Paliguana, Kuehneosaurus, and Lepidosauria (a node-based definition).
If two or more definitions have been established for identically spelled names, the only acceptable name (i.e., the combination of name and definition; see Note 12.1.1) is the first one established under this code.
