Etymology Not stated in the original description, but probably a Greek female given name, as Malmgren uses often ancient Greek female names for new genera in 'Nordiska Hafs-Annulater'. The genus is probably named after 'Artacama' or 'Artakama', a Persian noblewoman and second wife of Ptolemy I, the future ruler of Egypt and the first Pharaoh of the Ptolemaic dinasty, when he was still a general in the army of Alexander the Great. Artacama was a daughter of Artabazus of Phrygia and Queen Strateira.  [details]

Diagnosis Original diagnosis by Malmgren (1866: 394). "Lobus cephalicus labium suborbiculatum nudum magnum antice fingens, plicis longitudinalibus profunde sinuatum, postice tentaculis numerosis canaliculatis inaequalibus versus apicem paulo incrassatis obsitus. Apertura oris ad basin labii anticam lobi cephalici sat parva, ab hoc et tentaculis prorsus occultata. Segmentura buccale antice in proboscidem papillosam caecam sat magnam productum. Oculi nulli. Branchiae filiformes breves numerosae, agminatim dorso segmenti secundi tertii et quarti utrinque adnatae, e centro vix elevato communi progerminantes. Fasciculi setarum capillarium a segmento quarto, h. e. tertio branchifero, incipientes in 17 segmentis. Setae capillares apice attenuato late limbatae. Tori uncinigeri a segmento quinto, h. e. secundo setigero, incipientes, post segmentum ultimum setigerum in pinnulas uncinigeras, supra lobulo magno subrotundato praeditas, mutati, usque ad segmentum anteanale obvias. Uncini minuti breves subaviculares, vertice sat elevato indistincte 4 — 5 serrulato, uniseriales, in segmento autem septimo uneinigere et 9 sequentibus biseriales.[details]

Etymology Not stated in the original description, but probably a Greek female given name, as Malmgren uses often ancient Greek female names for new genera in 'Nordiska Hafs-Annulater'. The genus is probably named after 'Artacama' or 'Artakama', a Persian noblewoman and second wife of Ptolemy I, the future ruler of Egypt and the first Pharaoh of the Ptolemaic dinasty, when he was still a general in the army of Alexander the Great. Artacama was a daughter of Artabazus of Phrygia and Queen Strateira.  [details]

Grammatical gender Feminine, according to the ending of the specific epithet of Malmgren's type species, 'proboscidea'. Moreover, the genus is probably named after Artacama, a Persian noblewoman. [details]
