Unless you've got GPT disks where there are usually only partitions and 
they're numbered:

arthur@fileserver> gpart show ada5
=>       34  976773101  ada5  GPT  (466G)
          34          6        - free -  (3.0K)
          40         64     1  freebsd-boot  (32K)
         104    2097152     2  freebsd-ufs  (1.0G)
     2097256    2097152     3  freebsd-ufs  (1.0G)

    12583016  964190119     5  freebsd-ufs  (460G)

arthur@fileserver> ls /dev/ada5*
/dev/ada5	/dev/ada5p1	/dev/ada5p2	/dev/ada5p3	/dev/ada5p4	/dev/ada5p5

Personally I prefer labelling everything, which GPT makes easier.
