Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology Not stated. The generic epithet is composed by the combining form of Greek origin spiro-, meaning 'coil' or 'spiral', and the word verma, probably derived from the Latin noun vermis and meaning 'worm', and refers presumably to the body of the type species, described as being ''strongly spiraled'' (Uchida, 1968: 606). [details]
