Etymology Not stated, uncertain. The name of the genus Synelmis seems to be composed by the prefix of Greek origin syn-, meaning 'together', 'united' or 'similar', and the Greek noun (h)elmis, meaning 'intestinal worm' or 'parasitic worm', and could refer to the macroscopical similarity of the taxon with intestinal helminths.  [details]
