8 Underlying electrons cannot be ignored even though charged excitations are fully gapped. Order parameter description is incomplete They endow topological defects in the order parameter (hedgehogs, vortices...) with Berry phases: the defects acquire additional degeneracies and transform non-trivially under lattice space group e.g. with non-zero crystal momentum
