Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology Not stated. The name Dasybranchethus seems to be composed by the name of the genus Dasybranchus Grube, 1850 followed by the Latin suffix -etus, written as -ethus and meaning 'having the nature of', and presumably refers to the similarity between the two genera.  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorNomenclature "Dasybranchetus" is a lapsus [details]
