Etymology Not stated. Clearly a diminutive relating to William McIntosh (who had used the homonym Langerhansia replaced here as a subgenus), with Darboux shortening M'Intosh to 'Intosh' and combining it with -ellus -a -um conveying littleness or relatedness, thus 'little McIntosh'. For reasons unknown Darboux appears to make the genus feminine by using -ella as the suffix. It might have been for euphony with the type species name, thus Intoshella euplectellae, but as he creates three other -ella genera at the same time, including another for another male name (Herdman), perhaps he just preferred the feminine -ella over -ellus. [details]
