Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology Not stated. The generic named seems to be composed by the Greek words scole, meaning 'worm', and lepis, meaning 'scale' or 'flake', and presumably makes reference to the scales originally described as being present on the type species of the genus, Lumbricus squamatus Müller, 1806, and corresponding in fact to the dorsal lamellae fused with the branchiae. [details]

From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology Not stated. The generic named seems to be composed by the Greek words scole, meaning 'worm', and lepis, meaning 'scale' or 'flake', and presumably makes reference to the scales originally described as being present on the type species of the genus, Lumbricus squamatus Müller, 1806, and corresponding in fact to the dorsal lamellae fused with the branchiae. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorGrammatical gender Scolelepis appears to be feminine as treated by Blainville originally (modifying 'squamosus' [sic] to 'squamosa' [sic]), and the code in Art. 30 provides guidance, giving -lepis as an example among parts of a name from Greek to be treated as feminine. Whereas Scolex (a worm) is masculine in Latin. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorSpelling Various misspellings have entered the literature. Hartman catalogue reports Scolecolepis, Scolecolipis, Scolicolepis. There is also Scolepis, and apparently (not seen) Scololepis from Holly (1938).  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType species Type species Lumbricus squamatus O.F. Müller 1776, by monotypy but Blainville misreported the name as L. 'squamosus' [sic]. [details]
