Etymology Not stated by Linnaeus. According to Merriam Webster it is New Latin, from diminutive of Latin terebra borer or perforate, although this suggestion may be just speculation. The association is perhaps that Terebella can be found in holes or borings.The qualifier -ellus -a -um is either a diminutive or indicating somewhat. As Linnaeus used the feminine form Terebella, the genus is feminine. Also his type species was Terebella lapidaria (feminine) from the adjective lapidarius -a -um, meaning belonging to stones. [details]
