Etymology Not stated. The specific epithet branchiatus is a Latin adjective meaning 'having gills', and presumably is used to emphasize the fact that the species "differs from other species of the genus in having branchiae limited to far posterior segments, emerging from the posterior face of notopodia" (Hartman, 1976: 237).  [details]
