A Conversation for Mirror Matter - the Invisible Universe

A Question Of Names

Apollyon - Grammar Fascist

Every particle has a mirror particle; the mirror particle of a proton is called a mirror proton.

Every particle also has an anti-particle; the anti-particle of a proton is called an antiproton.

Anti-particles are also particles, hence they must have mirror particles.

Logically, the mirror particle of a positron is called a mirror positron.

My questions, therefore, is what to call the mirror particle of an antiproton? It it a mirror antiproton or an antimirror proton?

I prefer mirror antiproton, but I don't know if there is an official name.

Antimirror proton implies that the mirror is made of antimatter.
