Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology not stated, but apparently from Greek Hybos, a hump, and Scolex a worm. Both words are masculine. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorGrammatical gender Hyboscolex is a masculine compound noun, therefore adjectival species-group names should be masculine in agreement. The type of the genus should perhaps have been 'longisetosus' if adjectival, but if treated as a compound noun in apposition, since Schmarda used the noun 'seta' it would remain unchanged. [details]
