Etymology Not explicitly stated by the authors. The specific epithet anoculata is composed by the Greek prefix an- ('without' or 'lacking') followed by the Latin adjective oculata ('having eyes'), and refers presumably to the absence of eyes in the species: "prostomium [...] without eyes [...] Eulalia anoculata differs from other species of the genus in that [...] Eyes are absent" (Hartman & Fauchald, 1971: 41-42). [details]
