Etymology Not stated. The specific epithet exigua (masculine: exiguus), is a Latin adjective meaning 'strict' or 'exact', but also 'small', 'little' or 'short', and presumably refers to the small size of the species, described as being small, with the biggest specimen being 16 mm long: ''Sämtliche Exemplare sind kleine, das grösste ca. 16 mm lang und ohne Parapodien ca. 0,4 mm breit mit 89 Segmenten, das kleinste ca. 3 mm lang und 0,15 mm breit mit 36 Segmenten'' (Eliason, 1962: 232).  [details]
