Hiya, devs! I work with a lot of incomplete genomes (aren't they all?) that have large scaffolds still disconnected from the
assembled chromosomes, usually annotated as "scaffold" in the FASTA or GFF, but at LIS we've decided to use the synonym
"supercontig", since it implies an assembled collection of contigs, but, I guess, not as big as something called an "ultracontig":
SO Accession: SO:0000148 (SOWiki)
