Etymology Lagisca is an ancient Greek female given name. Malmgren multiple times uses ancient Greek female names for new genera in his Nordiska Hafs-Annulater work. In this case it is known that Lagis appears as the name of a courtesan in the work "The Deipnosophists of Athenaeus", while Lagisca as the name of a mistress appears earlier and in the preceding sentence. [details]

Etymology Lagisca is an ancient Greek female given name. Malmgren multiple times uses ancient Greek female names for new genera in his Nordiska Hafs-Annulater work. In this case it is known that Lagis appears as the name of a courtesan in the work "The Deipnosophists of Athenaeus", while Lagisca as the name of a mistress appears earlier and in the preceding sentence. [details]

Grammatical gender feminine as Lagisca is a Greek given name (see etymology) [details]

Status "Since Pettibone (1953) synonymized the type species of the genus Lagisca,
L. rarispina (Sars, 1861), with H. extenuata, we doubt the validity of the genus
Lagisca, being aware that only a complete revision of both genera could bring
enough evidence for this hypothesis." (Barnich & Fiege, 2000: 1915) [details]
