Etymology The specific epithet manca is the feminine form of the Latin adjective mancus, meaning 'crippled' or 'defective', and refers probably to the absence of the simple chaetae in some of the segments: "Two forms of setae apparently occur in all somites, cases where the simple ones are absent being evidently due to accident" (Treadwell, 1931: 2).  [details]
