A convent is either a community of priests, religious brothers, religious sisters, monks or nuns. The term derives via Old French from Latin conventus, perfect participle of the verb convenio, meaning to convene, to come together; the original reference was to the gathering of mendicants. Technically, a “monastery" or "nunnery" is a community of monastics, whereas a "friary" or "convent" is a community of mendicants, a "canonry" a community of canons regular; the terms "abbey" and "priory" can be applied to both canonries. In English usage since about the 19th century the term "convent" invariably refers to a community of women, while "monastery" and "friary" are used for men. In historical usage they are interchangeable, with "convent" likely to be used for a friary; when applied to religious houses in Eastern Orthodoxy and Buddhism, English refers to all houses of male religious as "monasteries" and of female religious "convents".

Osprioneides is an ichnogenus of unbranched, elongate borings in lithic substrate with oval cross−section, single−entrance and straight, curved or irregular course. Osprioneides kampto Beuck and Wisshak, 2008 is the largest known Palaeozoic boring trace, it occurs in the Silurian of Baltica. The borings are up to 120 mm long measuring 5–17 mm in diameter; the distribution of Osprioneides is more environmentally limited than that of Trypanites in the Silurian of Saaremaa, Estonia. Osprioneides occurred only in large hard substrates of deepwater muddy bottom open shelf environments. Osprioneides were rare, as compared to Trypanites-Palaeosabella borings in the Wenlock of Saaremaa. Beuck L. Wisshak M. Munnecke A. Freiwald A..
