Etymology The specific epithet pappus is a Latin noun with Greek origin, being an affectionate term for elderly men, referencing beards or white hairs. In the present case it is stated by the authors to be the Latin word for 'bristle', and refers to the presence of notosetae almost to the pygdium.  [details]
