We present a minimalistic metapattern which we call the Stub pattern. It acts as a type of placeholder for future extensions of an ontology in cases where a more finegrained modeling would currently be counterproductive, but future extensions may call for more details. We motivate the Stub pattern, define it, and provide examples.
