Etymology In a footnote McIntosh (p.186) explains "Named after the Earl of Dalhousie, K.T., who has both earnestly and practically interested himself in the marine fisheries of this country." Later in 1901 McIntosh named Dalhousiella (also Hesionidae) after the same gentleman. [details]

Grammatical gender Feminine. For unknown reasons McIntosh made the genus Dalhousia feminine, confirmed by the species suffix in 'atlantica', although Dalhousie was male. [details]
