Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology Not stated. The generic epithet Scoloplella seems to be composed by the name of the genus Scoloplos Blainville, 1828, followed by the Latin suffix -ella (masculine: -ellus), which is added to a noun to form a diminuitive of that noun, and presumably makes reference to the small size of the type species of the new genus. [details]
