Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology The name of the new genus is a combination of the prefix streptos, from the Greek, meaning twisted (in reference to Streptosyllis), and the sufix donta (in reference to Opisthodonta), as the genus shares characters of both genera, thick, enlarged aciculae, like those present in Streptosyllis and a posterior pharyngeal tooth, like those present in Opisthodonta.  [details]
