I'm not sure of the official name, but it's the "minimum aperture detection lever/switch". When using a lens with an aperture ring, the switch tells the camera that the lens is properly set to the minimum aperture. (Lenses with an aperture ring must be set and locked at their minimum aperture for metering and aperture control to function. You get the "fee" error otherwise.)
