Etymology Not stated. 'Poma' is a neuter Greek noun for a lid (operculum) and 'phragma' is a neuter Greek noun for a hedge or fence. Thus probably Phragmatopoma is named for a fence-like operculum in the form of the tightly arrayed paleal spines. The genus should be neuter but Mörch used a feminine ending for Phragmatopoma caudata. [details]

Etymology Not stated. 'Poma' is a neuter Greek noun for a lid (operculum) and 'phragma' is a neuter Greek noun for a hedge or fence. Thus probably Phragmatopoma is named for a fence-like operculum in the form of the tightly arrayed paleal spines. The genus should be neuter but Mörch used a feminine ending for Phragmatopoma caudata. [details]

Grammatical gender In practice Phragmatopoma has been treated as feminine although probably it should have been regarded as neuter. A compound noun derived from two neuter nouns should be neuter, but Mörch and three others subsequently used feminine ending species names. Kirtley (1994:26) stated the genus was feminine, but did not explain the reasoning for his statement. [details]
