Etymology author: "Named after G. Busk, Esq, F.R.S., one of the most devoted and most exact of living zoologists." George Busk was a medical doctor (as was McIntosh), who later became a naturalist, specializing in bryozoa and in vertebrate palaeontology. The '-ellus -a -um' suffix is a diminutive, here given a feminine ending. The species-group name 'abyssorum' is a genitve plural of the noun abyss, thus 'of the abysses'. McIntosh had already named a holothurian species, Labidoplax buskii, after Busk, using the more usual noun in the genitive. [details]

Grammatical gender Feminine. Although named after Busk who was a male, the genus is nevertheless feminine as McIntosh gave it a feminine suffix (article 30.2.4). [details]
