Type species Type species given as Staurocephalus rubrovittatus Grube 1855 [= Dorvillea rubrovittata] in Hartman catalogue, also in Jumars, 1974, Fauchald, 1977, and elsewhere, but this is incorrect. The type remains Dorvillea lobata Parfitt, 1866, but it is a subjective synonym of D. rubrovittata. [details]

Etymology Author: "I have named this genus as a slight tribute of regard to Mr. H. D'Orville, who kindly placed Colonel Montagu's MSS and drawings in my hands. The beautiful drawings were made by Mr. D'Orville's mother, many of which were transferred into the Linnean Society's 'Transactions,' to illustrate Colonel Montagu's papers on the animals of South Devon." This seems to be a reference to the artist Elizabeth Dorville, who was George Montagu's partner. Her "beautiful drawings" may not have been published, as the published figures included in Parfitt are rudimentary. Dorvillea has been treated as feminine by later workers (no masculine endings exist), perhaps as they were aware of the connection to Liza Dorville, but it can be seen that the attribution by Parfitt is ambivalent as to which Dorville, and seems to apply more to her son, although significantly Parfitt did use a feminine adjectival ending with his species Dorvillea lobata. [details]

Homonymy The junior homonymy of the annelid name Dorvillea Parfitt, 1866 to the mollusc name Dorvillea Leach, 1852, has strangely been largely overlooked, with Dorvilleidae, the family name based on Dorvillea, in almost universal use within clade Eunicida since at least the 1960s. However, Dorvillea might be able to be saved as Dorvillea Leach has not been used as a valid name after 1899 [details]

Grammatical gender Feminine. Parfitt did use a feminine adjectival ending in Dorvillea lobata (lobatus would be the masculine), and no subsequent masculine species-name adjectival endings in Dorvillea have been created, although the reference by Parfitt to the Dorville family seems more directed towards H. Dorville, the son of Liza Dorville, who had evidently illustrated the species. However, it seems best to continue the genus as feminine, as Parfitt evidently intended. [details]
