Etymology Not stated. The specific epithet dorsomaculata means 'pigmented back', being composed by the Latin noun dorso, a form of dorsum and meaning 'back', and the Latin adjective maculata, feminine of maculatus and meaning 'stained' or 'spotted', referring presumably to the ''Pigment spots present between [chaetigers] X and XXV, anterior to each gill and in groups anteriomedial to these'' (Rainer, 1973: 560).  [details]

Taxonomy Synonymised by Blake & Kudenov, 1978, without comment or examination of material. Rainer was aware of the similarity.
