Is there a Latin phrase that would be used when accepting some statement without providing the proof of such a statement?
For example, say you are working on an elementary number theory proof, and you make the statement "since $p$ is odd, $p^2$ is odd, which we accept [Latin phrase for 'without showing proof']." Obviously this is a simple thing to prove, but in some cases it might be nice to acknowledge that a proof exists and we do not wish to show it.
Could ex facie be used in such a situation ("we accept ex facie that $q$ odd implies $q^2$ odd")? Or failing the existence of a Latin phrase, is there a way that sounds a little less crude than "without proof"?
