Background information

Osnullus is a broken-Latin formation intended to express "mouthless", from Latin noun os, oris (mouth) + pronoun nullus (none).

While the name for the species has not been used on screen, Glenn Hetrick, Department Head of Prosthetic and Special F/X Makeup for Star Trek: Discovery, used the term "Osnullus" on the Alchemy Studios website. The website features images of the head sculpt and hand sculpt of this species. [1]

Different individuals of this species have also been repeatedly referred to as "Osnullus" by production sources such as actress Avaah Blackwell and director/executive producer Olatunde Osunsanmi. [2] [3]
