What's your theory on this term?

I'm trying to think of a word....
Is there a term for a 'theory' (in the scientific sense) that explains the majority of the data/observations, but is not fully complete?

....in other words, there is still an element that needs to be worked into the explanation and that has not happened yet. It's an...incomplete theory. I'm looking for a term for that if one exists.
