Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology "The generic name refers to the resemblance between this notophycid and members of the Phyllodocidae" (Fauchald & Belman, 1972: 107). The Latin suffix -ella (masculine: -ellus) is added to a noun to form a diminuitive of that noun, so the name Phyllodocella would mean 'a small sized Phyllodocidae'.  [details]
