Etymology Not stated in the original description. The specific epithet incana is a Latin adjetive meaning 'hoary', 'canescent' or 'covered with short, dense, grayish white hairs', and refers presumably to the presence of long white tentacles: "Tentacula candida, numerosissima, maxime extensilia. [....] Cette espèce se reconnaît [...] surtout au nombre et à la largueur de ses tentacules blancs, susceptibles d'une extension extraordinaire" (Claparède, 1870: 494). [details]
