From editor or global species database
Type locality Laguna Beach, southern California, USA, Pacific Ocean (gazetteer estimate 33.5411° -117.7863°). [details]
Type material Holotype 19 mm long, stated to have been deposited in the Museum of Comparative Zoology at Cambridge, with the number MCZ 2143 (Chamberlin, 1919: 5). Later, Banse (1972: 196) adds: "A parapod of the holotype, from southern California, MCZ, was examined. The type specimen cannot be found (Dr. H. W. Levi, Harvard University, personal communication)." This mounted parapodium (MCZ 26802) was also studied by Pleijel (1991: 249; "The only type material available is a mounted parapodium without any setae or aciculum present, and in a too poor shape to be of any use") and Kato & Pleijel (2002: 1144, 1171; "The type and the only known specimen of the species includes only a single mounted parapodium, and the flattened nature of the ventral tentacular cirri cannot be re-assessed. [...] The combination of a dorsal acicula and a capillary chaeta, the broad dorsal cirrus, the ventral cirrus with the longitudinal axis obliquely orientated, and the rostrum of chaetal shafts with a large number of teeth, shows that it belongs to Notophyllum." Chamberlin (1919: 5) also refers the existence of a paratype.  [details]

Etymology Not stated by the author. The specific epithet tectum is a Latin noun meaning 'roof', 'ceiling' or 'canopy', and refers presumably to the way how the foliaceous notocirri overlap and cover the dorsum, forming a canopy or ceiling: "With very large cirri of which the dorsals widely overlap in the middle and thus completely cover the dorsum, the prostomium normally also being wholly concealed from above. [...] This species suggests Notophyllum imbricatum Moore in the large imbricated notocirri covering the dorsum" (Chamberlin, 1919: 5). [details]
