Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology Not stated. The generic name Mystides seems to be composed by the name of the genus Mysta Malmgren, 1865 followed by the suffix of Greek origin -ides, a suffix of source or origin, and meaning 'pertaining to', 'son of' or 'descendant of', referring presumably to the morphological similarities between the two genera.  [details]
