Actually, I think Heterocera'ers is much better than either. No
mistaking it with moffers (moth'ers-moffers), your tongue doesn't get
stuck to, or bit by, your teeth while saying it, and it denotes a high
level of scientific acumen. Also, no chance of a 3 year old being able
to say this one, let alone drool while saying it!!!!
