Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology The specific epithet paradoxus, meaning 'strange' or 'contrary to expectation' in Ancient Greek, refers probably to the strange look of the species, or to the fact that the species is a Syllidae, in spite of resembling a Sphaerodoridae at first sight due to its four rows of dorsal tubercles and rounded tentacular and dorsal cirri.  [details]
