Etymology The specific epithet linea is a Latin noun meaning 'line' or 'dash' and refers presumably to the presence of fine brownish lines on the prostomium and anterior chaetigers: "On the peristomium and first 15 setigerous somites there are on either side 8 to 10 fine brownish lines starting at the posterior border and running antero-dorsally. The dorsalmost of these bend toward the dorsal mid line and do not reach the anterior margin. Others reach the margin, but the lines of successive somites do not unite. A few are forked toward their anterior ends. In the first setigerous somite about one-fourth of the mid-dorsal area is free from these lines, and this free portion widens in later somites to occupy about half of the dorsal surface. Behind the fifteenth somite the lines gradually shorten and are not found behind the twenty-second" (Treadwell, 1936: 268-269).
