What do you call the symbol that looks a bit like a shepherds crook and is used to denote for egs, parcels of land separated by road as a single parcel?

We call those "fishhooks". Don't know why, since they don't look especially like fishhooks.

I've also seen them referred to as parcel hooks. (by hook or by crook?)

thanks for replies. It was featured in an Esri post that I wanted and I found it from 'parcel hooks'.
