Etymology Not stated, unclear. The name Notodasus is composed by the prefix of Greek origin noto-, meaning 'the back', followed by the Greek adjective dasus, meaning 'hairy' or 'shaggy'. Maybe it refers to the presence of notopodial bilimbate capillary chaetae up to chaetiger 13, or to the presence of bilimbate capillary chaetae in the first two abdominal chaetigers.  [details]
