Etymology Not stated, but clearly for honoring the well-known biologist Otto Andreas Lowson Mörch (also seen as Mørch when using the Scandinavian o-slash character. Mørch was Danish. [details]

Spelling Quatrefage used "morchii" without an umlaut, and without an o slash. Also Morch was Danish, not German, thus "moerchii", the spelling formerly used in WoRMS is doubly incorrect (Code article 32.5.2.1). Informally Quatrefages used "Cymospire de Mörch, but formally he used C. morchii. The "moerchii" spelling has (almost?) no usage in print. Bush (1904: 178) for example used Spirobranchus mörchi (Quatrefages) (incorrect for the accent, and for the single i). [details]

Type locality Australia. Quatrefages recorded the locality as "Nlle-Hollande", presumably a French usage (Nouvelle) of the Dutch Nieuw Holland, English New Holland, historical European names for Australia. [details]
