Remark 82.7.2. In Situation 82.2.1 let $X/B$ be good. Every $x \in |X|$ can be represented by a (unique) monomorphism $\mathop{\mathrm{Spec}}(k) \to X$ where $k$ is a field, see Decent Spaces, Lemma 68.11.1. Then $k$ is the *residue field of* $x$ and is denoted $\kappa (x)$. Recall that $X$ has a dense open subscheme $U \subset X$ (Properties of Spaces, Proposition 66.13.3). If $x \in U$, then $\kappa (x)$ agrees with the residue field of $x$ on $U$ as a scheme. See Decent Spaces, Section 68.11.
