Etymology Not stated. The subspecific epithet simplex is a Latin adjective meaning 'single', 'simple', or 'not complex', and presumably refers to the neuropodial hooks of the subspecies, described as having a "curved unidentate tip which never has any prolongation or sign of an arista", in opposition to the stem form Aricidea suecica Eliason, 1920, "described as having an arista or slender blade projecting beyond the apex of the neuropodial hook in the middle of the body" (Day, 1963: 365).  [details]
