trabecular reticulum



Reticulum (reticle), is one of the minor southern constellations. It was introduced in the early 17th century by the astronomer Isaac Habrecht, who named it Rhombus. It was later renamed by Nicolas Louis de Lacaille to commemorate the reticle, which was a scientific instrument used to measure star positions.

Since it was introduced in the 18th century, there is no earlier mythology associated with it.
