Etymology Not stated in the original description. The specific epithet hiata seems to be derived from hiatus, a Latin noun meaning 'break', 'interruption', or 'missing gap' and seems to refer to the ventral shape of the upper lip: "ventrally it is thicker and bends around so that [...] it appears as a sausage-shaped lobe on either side of the mouth, the two lobes almost meeting in the mid-ventral line" (Treadwell, 1931: 81). [details]
