Etymology The derivation of 'Laetmonice' is unknown. It is seemingly not a personal name from ancient Greek. Speculatively it probably is derived from Greek Laitma -tos n, meaning the deep sea (Brown, 1956), and there are other genera similarly named (eg. Laetmogone, a holothurian). Again speculatively the suffix might come from -ikos (-icus in Latin) meaning 'belonging to', thus Laetmonice would be 'belonging to the deep sea' [details]

Etymology The derivation of 'Laetmonice' is unknown. It is seemingly not a personal name from ancient Greek. Speculatively it probably is derived from Greek Laitma -tos n, meaning the deep sea (Brown, 1956), and there are other genera similarly named (eg. Laetmogone, a holothurian). Again speculatively the suffix might come from -ikos (-icus in Latin) meaning 'belonging to', thus Laetmonice would be 'belonging to the deep sea' [details]

Spelling 'Laetmonice' would seem to be simple to spell correctly but the Hartman catalogue lists some strange misrepresentations including Laetmatonice, Laetatonice, Laetmotonice, Letmonice, Loetmatonice. Hartman only documents the originator of Laetmatonice (used for 5 taxa) which was evidently Baird, 1865. Recently Watanabe et al (2023) added 'Laetomonice' to the list of misspellings [details]
