Etymology Not stated. The specific epithet platyproctus is composed by the combining forms of Greek origin platy-, meaning 'flat', and -proctus, meaning 'anus', and presumably refers to the shape of the pygidium of the species, described as being "a flattened plaque [...], slightly oblique to a transverse plane" (Jones, 1961: 12).  [details]
