Etymology Not stated. The specific epithet spinosa (masculine: spinosus) is a Latin adjective meaning 'thorny' or 'prickly', and presumably refers to the simple spines present in all parapodia of the species: ''Setae include thick, distally blunt, simple spines in all parapodia'' (Fauchald & Hancock, 1981: 20).  [details]

Taxonomy Kudenov (1985:339), examined the only specimen and suggested Mucibregma spinosa might be a member of Fauveliopsidae.
