Etymology The specific epithet rubriceps is a Latin adjective meaning 'ruddy-headed', and refers to the reddish colour of the prostomium of the species: "they [the specimens] are conspicuous for the reddish brown color of the prostomium, hence the specific name" (Hartman & Fauchald, 1971: 101). [details]
