Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology The specific epithet torulosa derives from the Latin word torulus, diminuitive of torus, meaning 'protuberance' or 'swelling', and the suffix -osus in the feminine form, -osa, which added to a noun forms an adjective indicating an abundance of that noun, and refers to the great development of the palps of the species ("Ce nom fait allusion au grand développement des lobes ou tores frontaux"; Claparède, 1874: 553).  [details]
