Etymology The specific epithet palmeri derives from the name of the RVIB Nathaniel B. Palmer, research vessel of the United States Antarctic Program, "on which most of the specimens reported in this paper were collected" (Blake, 2015). The research vessel is named after Nathaniel B. Palmer, "an American whaler, who is reputed to be among the first to sight the Antarctic continent" (Blake, 2015).  [details]
