Etymology The specific epithet parva (masculine: parvus) is a Latin adjective meaning 'small' or 'little', and refers to the small size of the species: ''A. parva is allied to A. tentaculata Treadwell 1941 from Long Island Sound, U.S.A. Both are small species [...]. A. robusta from Angola [...] is a much larger species'' (Day, 1963: 395, 396). [details]
