Etymology The species is named in allusion to the unique shape of the spermathecal duct; laxartus from the latin laxus meaning wide or broad, combined with artus meaning joints. Earlier in her 1998 thesis Locke had used the name G. 'laxarta' 38 times, which would be the correct spelling for gender agreement (Grania is feminine). However, here the authors use the spelling 'laxartus' and state it is a noun in apposition. Therefore it is invariant, and independent of genus gender. [details]
