    • Analogue (Nat. Hist) A species in one genus or group having its characters parallel, one by one, with those of another group.
    • Analogue (Nat. Hist) A species or genus in one country closely related to a species of the same genus, or a genus of the same group, in another: such species are often called representative species, and such genera, representative genera.
    • Analogue (Philol) A word in one language corresponding with one in another; an analogous term; as, the Latin “pater” is the analogue of the English “father.”
    • Analogue (Nat. Hist) An organ which is equivalent in its functions to a different organ in another species or group, or even in the same group; as, the gill of a fish is the analogue of a lung in a quadruped, although the two are not of like structural relations.
    • Analogue That which is analogous to, or corresponds with, some other thing. "The vexatious tyranny of the individual despot meets its analogue in the insolent tyranny of the many."

    • n analogue In general, something having analogy to something else; an object having some agreement or correspondence in relations, functions, or structure with another object.
    • n analogue Specifically In philology, a word corresponding with another; an analogous term.
    • n analogue In zoology and botany, an animal or a plant corresponding in some special and essential attributes or relations to a member of another group or region, so that it is a representative or counterpart.
    • n analogue In biology, an organ in one species or group having the same function as an organ of different structure and origin in another species or group. The difference between homologue and analogue may be illustrated by the relation between the wing of a bird and that of a butterfly: as the two differ totally in anatomical structure, they cannot be said to be homologues, but they are analogues, since both serve for flight. See analogy, 5.

    • Analogue a word or body bearing analogy to, or resembling, another:
    • Analogue (biol.) a term used to denote physiological, independent of morphological resemblance.—Organs are analogous to one another, or are analogues, when they perform the same function, though they may be altogether different in structure; as the wings of a bird and the wings of an insect. Again, organs are homologous, or homologues, when they are constructed on the same plan, undergo a similar development, and bear the same relative position, and this independent of either form or function. Thus the arms of a man and the wings of a bird are homologues of one another, while the wing of a bird and the wing of a bat are both analogous and homologous
