Phenotype is an old community term which referred to the species that is a Therian's identity. First used on November 28, 1993 on alt.horror.werewolves. This term is still in use by some therians online, but the term was eventually changed to get away from the misnomer of a phenotype being a biological term about the physically observable expression of a genetic trait. [1] The continued usage of the term phenotype for a theriotype is not forbidden but it is unpreferred. The current term is Theriotype.
