Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType species Kinberg included only his T. fecunda and T. polytricha (Schmarda) in his new genus. Blake (1996:366) records Cirratulus anchylochaetus Schmarda as type species for Timarete, and as designated by Hartman in her catalogue, and including Timarete fecunda Kinberg as a junior synonym. This is understandable reasoning. However, under the current code, the type can only be T. fecunda, and cannot be a nominal species not originally included in the genus. Hartman knew T. fecunda had been synonymised with T. anchylochaeta (Schmarda), and presumably used the latter name for that reason. Strictly her designation is invalid. However, possibly there may be a valid prior or subsequent designation of T. fecunda in other literature. Otherwise the type is unresolved. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology Kinberg gives no etymology. The Greek woman Timarete was a 5th century BC painter. Genus gender therefore is feminine as also is confirmed by Kinberg's epithets, 'fecunda' 'polytricha'. [details]
