Etymology Not stated. The generic name Mucibregma is composed by the Latin prefix muci-, variant of muco- and meaning 'mucus', followed by the Latin noun with Greek origin bregma, meaning 'front of the head', and presumably refers to the presence of a mucus membrane encasing the body of the type species, attached anteriorly to the peristomium: ''The whole body was encased in a tough mucus membrane attached anteriorly to large glands on the peristomium'' (Fauchald & Hancock, 1981: 20).  [details]

Taxonomy Kudenov (1985:339), examined the only specimen and suggested Mucibregma might be a member of Fauveliopsidae.
