Etymology Not stated in the original description. The specific epithet macropus is a New Latin adjective derived from the Ancient Greek meaning 'large-footed', and refers presumably to the presence of long foliaceous notopodial ligules in the posterior parapodia: "ligula superiore in parte corporis posteriore valde elongata [...] plus en arrière [la forme des pieds] change graduellement par suite d'un développement excessif de la rame supérieure, au point que dans la région postérieure la forme des pieds (1 F) devient méconnaissable. Un examen attentif enseigne cependant que la forme si anormale de ces pieds est due à un développement excessif de la languette supérieure (a), portant toujours le cirre dorsal (d) près de son extrémité" (Claparède, 1870: 444, 446). [details]
