Etymology The specific epithet typica is the feminine of the Latin adjective typicus, meaning 'typical', and refers to the presumed similarity of the species with the type of the genus Pionosyllis, stated by Moore (1909: 326) as "this species stands closer to the type species than any of the three already described from the Pacific coast of North America".  [details]
