Etymology The specific epithet anserina (masculine: anserinus) is a Latin adjective meaning 'of or pertaining to a goose', and refers to the shape of the proboscis which, when everted, presents several digitiform processes connected at their bases by a membrane, resembling the interdigital membrane of a goose's foot (goose = anser, Latin): ''[...] sa trompe exertile [...] peut s'étaler en un disque membraneux, à bords prolongés en processus digitiformes très-contractiles. [...] Ils paraissent unis à leur base les uns aux autres, comme les doigts d'une patte d'oie par leur palmure. De là le nom spécifique.'' (Claparède, 1864: 505). [details]
