As used in descriptions of whole insects on this site, length was measured with dial calipers from the head of the specimen to the tips of the forewings (at rest) or to the tip of the abdomen, whichever was longest. In females, the measurement excluded the ovipositor but included the subgenital plate. In males, the measurement included any ventral or dorsal abdominal process. In false katydids (Phaneropterinae), the tips of the hindwings were included in the measurement, because they were the color and texture of the forewings and in the same plane.

The dimension of a flag measured from the hoist to the end of the fly.
the linear extent in space from one end to the other; the longest horizontal dimension of something that is fixed in place; "the length of the table was 5 feet"

a distance measurement
a measure of distance
On a Golomb ruler, the total sum of the ruler. For example, a ruler with marks at 0-1-3-7 would have total length 7, found by subtracting the first and last number of the ruler. If written in the more conventional way with distances, 0-1-2-4, (the same ruler as the first example) one would find the length by adding up all the numbers. IE, 0+1+2+4=7. See also: Golomb rulers.
