Etymology Author: "named for the late Dr. Jorgen B. Kirkegaard, polychaete specialist and deep-sea biologist of the Zoological Museum of Copenhagen. Dr. Kirkegaard described the first of the bitentaculate cirratulids having denticulate capillary setae: Cirratulus dorsobranchialis." Not stated by the author is that although Kirkegaardia is named after a man, the genus gender is feminine, as was Monticellina. Thus no species group names gender changes in spelling are required in transitioning from Monticellina to Kirkegaardia.  [details]
