Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology The specific epithet speciosa is the feminine form of the Latin adjective speciosus, meaning 'beautiful' or 'splendid', and probably refers to the colouration of the species, which was described by Izuka (1912: 184) as follows: "Colour of living specimens purplish brown dorsally, with a median longitudinal yellowish patch in each segment, except on anteriormost six segments and the anal segment; on the sixth segment a broad yellowish transverse band; posterior half of penultimate and anal segments lighter coloured. All the tentacles and cirri are milk-white.[details]
