Etymology Not stated. The specific epithet anomalochaeta is composed by the Latin adjective anomalo, form of anomalus and meaning 'anomalous' or 'abnormal', and the New Latin noun chaeta, from the Greek chaite and meaning 'bristle' or 'hair', and presumably refers to the unique chaetae of the species. According to Monro (1930: 77), "The bristles [...] are remarkable. They are strongly heterogomph, and the ''hilt'' ends in a large hook, below which is the articulation for the very small delicately hirsute blade. [...] I believe these markedly heterogomph bristles to be distinctive of this species, for I know no Eulalia with chaetae at all resembling them." [details]
