Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology The generic named Acrocirrus is composed by the New Latin prefix of Greek origin acro-, meaning 'highest', 'at the extremity', 'tip' or 'peak', and the Latin noun cirrus, meaning 'curl' or 'filament', and refers to the presence of developed cirri and other appendages being restricted to the anterior region of the body.  [details]
