Etymology Not stated. The subgeneric epithet is composed by the name of the genus Amphitrite O.F. Müller, 1771, followed by the suffix of Greek origin -ides, a suffix of source or origin, and meaning 'pertaining to', 'son of' or 'descendant of', and refers presumably to the morphological similarities between the two taxa. [details]
