Etymology Not stated in the original description. The specific epithet corallicola is a New Latin adjective meaning 'inhabitant of corals' or 'living in corals', and is composed by the Greek noun coral, followed by the Latin suffix -cola, meaning 'inhabitant' or 'one who inhabits', and refers presumably to the habitat of the species, which was found living in coral rock. [details]
