Etymology McIntosh (1901) has a footnote explaining he has named the genus for the late Secretary for Scotland (unnamed). Although not certain, this might have been John William Maule Ramsay, 13th Earl of Dalhousie, who died in 1887, although only briefly Secretary. Earlier in 1885 (Challenger report) McIntosh had named hesionid genus Dalhousia after the same person ("Named after the Earl of Dalhousie, K.T., who has both earnestly and practically interested himself in the marine fisheries of this country." [details]

From editor or global species database
Etymology McIntosh (1901) has a footnote explaining he has named the genus for the late Secretary for Scotland (unnamed). Although not certain, this might have been John William Maule Ramsay, 13th Earl of Dalhousie, who died in 1887, although only briefly Secretary. Earlier in 1885 (Challenger report) McIntosh had named hesionid genus Dalhousia after the same person ("Named after the Earl of Dalhousie, K.T., who has both earnestly and practically interested himself in the marine fisheries of this country." [details]

Grammatical gender Feminine. Although Dalhousie was male, the addition of the Latin diminutive suffix -ella to a name not Latin or Greek makes the gender feminine (Article 30.2). The Code gives the example of Cummingella (from Cumming). McIntosh's species name (carpenteri) is another personal name, and a genitive, so it is not possible to decide a genus gender from the example of the type species. [details]

Taxonomy McIntosh (1901) doesn't make clear this is a new taxon, but in a footnote he comments, "The genus thus provisionally established agrees with Hesione in the uniramous foot, but differs in [chaetae] and number of tentacular cirri [details]
