Definitions and Meaning of alula in English

alula noun

  1. tuft of small stiff feathers on the first digit of a bird's wing.

    bastard wing, spurious wing


  2. scalelike structure between the base of the wing and the halter of a two-winged fly.



The alula, or bastard wing, is a small projection on the anterior edge of the wing of modern birds and a few non-avian dinosaurs. The word is Latin and means "winglet"; it is the diminutive of ala, meaning "wing". The alula is the freely moving first digit, a bird's "thumb", and typically bears three to five small flight feathers, with the exact number depending on the species. There also are minor covert feathers overlying the flight feathers. Like the larger flight feathers found on the wing's trailing edge, these alula feathers are asymmetrical, with the shaft running closer to anterior edge.
