Etymology Not stated in the original description. The specific epithet cirrata (masculine: cirratus) is a Latin adjective meaning 'having cirri', and refers presumably to the presence of cirri in the first segment of the species: "A pair of long, cirriform appendages [...] is inserted between the peristomium and the first setigerous segment, in line with the parapodia; they extend distally beyond the prostomium and are easily lost, as shown by most specimens which retain only their scars of attachment. [...] The first segment has a pair of cirriform appendages, which is unknown for any other flabelligerid [...]" (Hartman & Fauchald, 1971: 118-119). [details]
